Letter From John Azevedo

Whether or not one approves of the job performance of the Santa Clara City Council you can’t help but wonder if James Rowen (Letters…June 8) has ever heard the idea that; I may not agree with your opinion but, I will defend until my death, your right to express it.

His objection to the editorial comments of Miles Barber concluded with an airline passenger analogy that suggests Mr. Barber just needs to sit down and shut up.

Kind of ironic that Mr. Rowen’s letter was published by the very man he suggests needs to keep quiet.
