[Susan notes: Kudos for calling editorialists on their exaggerations and dirty tricks.]
To the editor
This editorial (Re "Image isn't everything") proved nothing except that The Times can dish out bash journalism at its worst -- and this one packed a knockout punch. Why, the writer managed to provide (in one paragraph no less!) analogies to pederasty and cross-country illegal trafficking (umm, is it even possible to get more sensationalist than that?) and end with the grandstanding (if cliche) line "It's a public travesty" -- ouch!
