LOOSE LIPS’ VEHEMENT attack on Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (3/15) was unwarranted. I am neither a member of the teachers’ union nor have I always agreed with her positions, but I am a satisfied constituent. In the school-voucher fiasco, she earned my total support. Those of us without children in the D.C. schools still recognize our obligations to provide equal educational opportunities for all segments of society. Our schools are desperately in need of help, but a two-tiered education system is not the answer. Norton undoubtedly followed her conscience. Loose Lips’ vitriolic article, which was based extensively on the opinions of GOP staffers, was unworthy of him.
