Clubbing together

Re: "Where is the outrage over grenade attack on anti-government rally?", Letters, January 20.

On January 20, letter-writer Vint Chavala accused me of being "cowardly" and "hypocritical" because I hadn't written any letters condemning the killing of an anti-government protester at a demonstration.

But more recently a pro-red-shirt poet was murdered, most likely by the side Vint supports, and a grenade was thrown at a pro-red radio station. Yet I have not read a word of condemnation from Vint.

So congratulations, Vint, your application for membership to the Cowards and Hypocrites Club has been accepted! I'll see you at the next meeting.
