Letter to the editor: An unreliable source

Friday, August 30, 2013 - 12:01 am

B.J. Paschal is the last person I would rely on to comment on history. His complaint about Mitch Daniels’ deserving criticism of Zinn’s interpretation of history is laughable, especially when you consider that in Paschal’s past columns, he continues to spew the lie that our founding fathers were deists, a claim that is very easy to disprove.

He also makes these claims without providing original source documentation. There is no excuse for a retired professor of any discipline to continually attempt to perpetrate lies in order to further a particular political view. Paschal is hardly reliable when he attempts to dispute with anyone else on their view of history.
