Dear Editor:

In the Sept. 25 paper, your guest editorial writer compared Felicity Huffman’s two-week sentence for having someone cheat on her daughter’s SAT exam to the five-year sentence given to Tanya McDowell, a homeless woman in Connecticut who enrolled her son in a better school in a neighboring district.

Before your readers turn in their “Free Felicity Now!” T-shirts and don “Justice for Tanya” apparel, they should know that the latter’s sentence was also for selling marijuana and crack cocaine outside an elementary school.

To this day, I remain thankful to have attended Salida public schools.

Greg Mehos,

Westford, Massachusetts
