A LETTER TO THE "PROINI"

July 15, 1997

To the editor of the ΠΡΩΙΝΗ:

I have sent you a copy of my letter to the Εθνικός Κήρυξ (dated July 9, 1997). As of today, the Εθνικός Κήρυξ has not published it. I have spoken to one of the said newspaper's editors. I have also spoken to the reporter whose stories my letter is addressing. They will not commit themselves to the publication of my letter. As a former journalist, I am appalled that any newspaper would refrain from publishing another point of view, especially since it has published dozens of stories presenting a particular point of view, over and over again. I am also disturbed that the editor of the said newspaper allows his reporter to assert his own opinion in the story as if it is fact. This is terrible journalism, and it gives journalists a bad name. My letter expresses a legitimate point of view, and I hope that you are willing to help offset the awful ball of confusion that the above-mentioned newspaper is guilty of generating. Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
Evan C. Lambrou

For further information, I am a graduate of Washington University in Saint Louis, Missouri (one of the finest schools in the nation), where I earned a degree in English Literature and Philosophy. I was a reporter for Park Newspapers of Saint Lawrence County in Ogdensburg, New York (where I won an award from the Associated Press for "outstanding coverage" on the Saint Regis-Mohawk Indian Reservation in 1989). I then became an editor for Eagle Newspapers in Syracuse, New York. I am also a published author (the title of my book is AIDS: Scare or Scam?). I am 35 years of age, and I have been a student at Holy Cross for the past two academic years. Of the four semesters that I have attended the theological school, I have recorded Dean's List honors for three of them.
