Re: “Zeiger’s college reflects shameful views” (online letter, 9-27).
In attempting to disparage 25th district candidate Hans Zeiger, the letter writer inadvertently slurs himself by setting forth a letter that is replete with distortions and untruths.
In regards to Hillsdale College, the writer parrots an editorial from the Hillsdale student newspaper and treats it as if it as if that represents college policy and norms. Hillsdale was the first school in America to open its doors and charter to women and African Americans. It is a classical liberal arts college that represents solid traditional and classical scholarship.
As the father of a student who attended the University of Washington and who is now graduating from Hillsdale, I can attest to the quality, civility and scholarship of the school.
As for Zeiger, I have had the privilege of getting to know him over the last three years – before he was running for office. He is a straightforward, honest and principled young man whom I would trust in any situation.
