Letter: Sports story insensitive to shooting victims
Editor’s note: In a story about the Kamiak girls basketball team losing two games in a row due to poor 3-point shooting, reporter David Pan wrote, “The … team doesn’t necessarily live or die by the 3-pointer, but the shot is a big part of its game.”
I must respond regarding the basketball article (“Shooting woes contribute to tough Kamiak losses,” David Pan, Jan. 12).
I do not know any of the victims of the horrific shooting in our community, but I must say that I found the wording of the sports article highly insensitive and inappropriate for a community still grieving the loss of loved ones who actually did “live or die.”
While the wording was perhaps meant to be catchy, it was just plain shameful. Let’s be respectful and raise the bar. Where are the grown ups?
