Cheap shots at the Bidens

February 18, 2010

I was astounded to read Chris Erskine's "On the Olympics" column in which he took Jill Biden to task for having a seafood platter for dinner and then went on to imply that the Bidens were personally responsible for Peggy Fleming's injury in an auto accident following a luncheon ("Fleming flap puts Biden on thin ice," Feb. 17). How can you waste valuable column inches on such irrelevant and mean-spirited commentary? Are preposterous cheap shots like this all that Mr. Erskine can produce? If so, I'm concerned that my subscription dollars are being squandered on a Tribune Company writer who might be able to find a life for himself if he chose a more suitable line of work.
