RUSH TO JUDGMENT

Our editorial on Rush Limbaugh ("#BoycottRush," March 9) drew several comments from our online readers at thePhoenix.com (all sic.— as if we had to tell you that).

The hypocrisy from the left is breathtaking. Did anyone hear from the Left Stream Media when Air America radio's Montel Williams urged Rep. Michelle Bachmann to kill herself, or the recent attack on Catholics from a Huffington Post "writer"? As for your editorial, there is no right to health insurance; employers decide whether or not to provide it. And while Limbaugh's choice of words wasn't good, he wasn't wrong. [Georgetown University Law student Sandra] Fluke wants to be able to have sex when she wants, and she wants the rest of us to pay for her contraception. Of course, she could just get pregnant and abort the child in her womb. No doubt she'd want the rest of us to pay for that, too. Finally, before you go claiming the entire Republican party is filled with hate, you might want to check the party affiliation of Lester Maddox, former Klansman Sen. Robert Bryd, and most of the southern Democrats of the '50s and '60s, many of whom opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act. -OTTEHG56

where was your outrage when ed sdhultz called laura ingrahm a "right wing slut" on his radio show? -JOHNQR

Sarah Palin was called much worse, where is the sympathy, oh it only counts if you do not agree with them. Sorry I forgot to reference that section of the liberal/progressive playbook. Hypocrites! -JEFFERSON

Anybody that thinks that El Rushbo is going off the air because of this is in the twilight zone. The man is the King and he will remain the King. -THOMAS

CORRECTION

Upon further review, our "Square Roots" story (News & Features, March 9) contained some errors in addition to the two reported last week. Novartis's new development is on approximately four acres of land, not 35 acres. A quote attributed to Sarah Gallop should have been attributed to Kathryn Brown of Forest City. And MIT purchased Economy Harvard more than 30 years ago, not in 2010.
