A LETTER TO THE EDITOR PRINTED ON NOV. 7 WAS EDITED TO MISREPRESENT THE AUTHOR’S OPINION. HERE IS THE ORIGINAL LETTER

“I found your editorial yesterday excoriating Mike Michaud for not having come out earlier in life in promoting causes favoring gay people (“Michaud is not out front,” Nov. 5, Page A6) to be uncharacteristically shrill and unreasoned.

Few would argue with the fact that Michaud has had a long and distinguished career of public service. It is not necessary for him to have declared his sexual identity previously — or even now. Nor is it necessary for him to have previously championed causes that might have favored him in his personal life.”
