Letter: Columnist says doesn’t support Bundy’s racial comments

To the Editor:

Setting the record straight: The issue of “Central View,” entitled as: “The Stand-off: Red China in Nevada?” was sent out to subscribers on April 20, 2014, four days before Nevada rancher, Cliven Bundy, made his reprehensible racial remarks. The column did not appear here in the local paper until April 25, 2014, the day after Mr. Bundy was quoted in the national media. Apparently, some readers, unwitting of publication submission and lag times, drew the wrongful conclusion that I support the racial comments of Mr. Bundy which I, of course, do not. I might add that when I was marching in the South in the 1960s with the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. organization (at some physical risk), I did not notice any of those writers at my side.
