As we have now heard, the Journal News of the Lower Hudson Valley of New York plans to release more names and addresses of pistol permit holders. In an article in the Huffington Post, a journalism professor at the State University of New York at New Paltz thinks the publishing of the names, addresses, and other personal information of Journal News staff in retaliation was "childish and petulant."
Howard Good, a journalism professor at the State University of New York at New Paltz, called the critics' response childish and petulant.That would be the same Professor Howard Good who lives in the Village of Highland in Ulster County, New York. He is fortunate that his 1,944 square foot raised ranch house built in 1972 has a full basement.
"It doesn't move the issue of gun control to the level of intelligent public discussion," he said.
"Instead, it transforms what should be a rational public debate on a contentious issue into ugly gutter fighting."
I wish I had a full basement.
