Sun editorial board got it right on Ben Carson

Many thanks to the Baltimore Sun for an eloquent editorial on the Ben Carson saga ("Ben Carson and the price of free speech," April 13). This is a work of art!

The Sun's staff has captured the essence of free speech with professorial precision. And, have accepted free speech that may be controversial, as long as it stays in context.

We also got a lesson in what happens when our so-called free speech becomes aberrant, degrading, and outside the limits of good taste.

This piece should also send an alert to those who are steadfast in their defense of Dr. Ben. Loyalty and preconception must be tempered with common sense and reality. Blind faith is very destructive.

Again, congratulations to the editorial staff at The Sun. If I were a teacher, your piece would be in my lesson plan.
