Stephanie Mencimer seems to enjoy writing articles on the District government personnel in each edition that comes out (“Double Trouble, 4/7). The individuals whose names are placed in the limelight because of their poor judgment, wrongdoings, and so on come from families that must suffer embarrassment and humiliation because of their family members’ actions. I am certain that if given the same opportunity, someone might be able to moonlight and dig up some dirt on Mencimer, who’s out to blackball every black official with any type of title working within the Addiction Prevention and Recovery Administration. Whites have been doing the same underhanded deals for centuries, but we know there are different strokes for the other folks.
