Letter: The Inn’s ‘desperate’ distraction

The article under the front-page banner headline in your paper last Thursday (April 9) seems to be the result of behavior that harks back to an old saying dating at least to the early 20th century:

“If the facts are against you, hammer the law. If the law is against you, hammer the facts. If the facts and the law are against you, hammer the opposing attorney.”

In the town of Washington, the current version is, “If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the facts and the law are against you, shout ‘homophobia’ and pound the opposing attorney.”

It is a desperate plea — one that deserves to fail.
