Colorado Massacre Result Of Moral Decay in America


To the editors:

It is ironic that the berating of Dan Quayle's presidential run by Baratunde R. Thurston '99 appeared in The Crimson the day of the Colorado massacre (Column, April 20).

Everyone will agree that what happened there was a tragedy--and Exhibit A in the consequences of the constant decline in family values and moral decay of this country. From a lying, cheating president to zero respect for human life with abortion-on-demand, these are the fruits of what we have sown.

The real problem with America is that the next generation--of which Thurston is a part--does not recognize this. PAUL BOISSELLE   April 22, 1999 The writer is assistant recruiting director for the Office of Career Services.
