For a time when I was editor of The Carthage Press, its owner, American Publishing, a subsidiary of Hollinger International, had a deal that allowed it to run features from the Los Angeles Times syndicate. One of the columnists whose work I ran regularly was Susan Campbell of the Hartford Courant, since she was a graduate of Webb City High School, and an excellent writer.
In her most recent column, Ms. Campbell addresses the controversy surrounding publicity-hungry Ann Coulter's latest book.
In response to Ms. Coulter's claim that her works are grounded in Christianity, Ms. Campbell writes:
I have searched for Coulter at the local Fellowship of Christian Athletes, at summer Bible camp and at Wednesday night prayer service, but she's not there. And if she's cracked open her Bible, I defy her to find the word "broad" or "harpie" in there. Speak your piece, Annie, but don't drag Jesus into it.
