Letter: Missing specifics

Tim Neumann’s response to Darlene Clark’s letter of March 31, regarding religious books at the World Eye Bookshop would have been more effectual had he cited some of the texts in question. But he states specifically in his closing paragraph that he “did not see the specific display of books that Darlene Clark mentions ...”

Short of printing the specific examples of the accusation he’s refuting, his letter only serves to tell us what he himself has been reading over the past couple of years. He clearly fancies himself as an enlightened Christian, who has read widely about a variety of newsprint, but aside from parading his own intellectual curiosity, little else is accomplished regarding Clark’s initial contention. Specificity is always a good starting point in framing one’s argument.
