Letter to the Editor: Criticism for Scaros’ “Lessons”

To the Editor,

Where to start with Constantinos Scaros’ latest op-ed piece, “Lessons to be Learned about the Kavanaugh Hearings” (Sept. 29)?

As a second-generation Greek-American, I have become accustomed to hearing beliefs that, to put it politely, do not accord with the norms of accepted opinion. That is okay, not everyone has to agree with the New York Times. Mr. Scaros is a Trump supporter? Again, fine; a healthy civic space can tolerate disagreement.

His latest production, however, is beyond the pale. It is offensive and embarrassing to me as a father, husband, and proud Hellene. Momentarily leaving aside that the compositional device of enumeration of talking points, oops, “lessons,” is best left to sixth graders entreating their parents for a new iPhone, his description of men and women as separate species, and their comparison to bulls and cows defies belief. It neither folksy nor authentic; simply stupid and asinine. One can be partisan without being a benighted idiot.

Mr. Scaros has spent too much time among the cow patties of rural Pennsylvania. They, and not the readers of The National Herald, are the proper audience for his ruminations. Stop giving this clown a platform.
