Response to Heimlich editorial: ‘Smug and uncharitable.’ | Letter to the Editor

Angela Carlson, OSU Senior Instructor of Music

I found your editorial on Luke Heimlich rather smug and uncharitable.  This fine athlete has paid for his offenses, committed when he was barely past childhood, and, as President Ray said, deserves the right to pursue his education. 

Undoubtedly it has taken a good deal of courage for Mr. Heimlich to put himself in the public eye as he has.  I daresay the OSU student body has many students with criminal records, and we should all cheer them on for trying to better themselves.
