Lareau letter called for cancelling subscription

Tony Palmeri discovered that Al Lareau's letter included a line calling for readers to cancel their subscription in protest. Not surprisingly, the Northwestern censored that line. He also posted that information in a comment below.

One of the more striking facets of writing this blog is noticing that it often turns into criticism of our local newspaper. Their editorial line is consistently anti-intellectual and specifically anti-university, unless it has to do with the sports program.

I would have hoped that our local newspaper would be supportive of one of the biggest employers in town and one that generates or supports much of the creative life of the community. Instead, Rieckman and his minions continually demonize us.
