Second-rate sarcasm II
I found Eric Heyl’s smarmy attitude out of line with the usually well-written, classy and intelligent offerings of the Trib. If Mr. Heyl disagrees with hunting, he should openly say so in a gentlemanly way, not in the specious use of hyperbole. I’m sure Heyl would scream if any government authority should “suspend” the use of his “right” to use certain words until it “updated” the dictionary.
Heyl assumes (a bad habit for a supposed “journalist”) that hunters are the only ones to be affected by the ill-conceived, poorly scheduled shutdown of the system. He shows no concern for a senior citizen such as myself, or a single mother et al., to defend themselves should an unscheduled need arise.
His derision of hunters and hunting flies in the face of the fact that hunters are the biggest financial supporters of wildlife and sanctuaries with their taxes, license fees and other support efforts.
Should Heyl prefer to write a satire or humor column, I’m sure the Trib could find a place for him — and label it as such.
