Frank Miele, managing editor of the Daily Inter Lake
I don’t have it too bad.
I’ve been called a coward, a moron, a bad journalist, and worst of all a bad writer for having the audacity to express my opinions in this column, but at least I have never been arrested or put on trial for telling the truth.
That distinct honor has been reserved for Mark Steyn, the Canadian author who lives in self-imposed exile in New Hampshire.
Many of you have probably never heard of Steyn, which is a pity because he is one of the funniest, most insightful and well-rounded social critics since H.L. Mencken. He is also one of the most persecuted authors since Emile Zola published “J’Accuse” in 1898.
