Don't blame Steve Moss for your arrogant attack, Shredder

I have been an avid reader of New Times since 1990. I was also an acquaintance of Steve Moss. The Shredder in the Aug. 29 New Times (“Blowhard”) was repulsive and egregious, then stooped even lower by stating: “Oh, and in case I get hammered for this column, Steve Moss’ ghost made me write it.”

Steve Moss’s ghost had nothing to do with the attack on Karen Velie or Dave Congalton. Steve was a good journalist and ran New Times with integrity and dignity.

Steve Moss’s brother was quoted in Steve’s obituary: “He wanted his papers to be fair and never arrogant,” his brother said. “He was always looking out for this profound sense of justice. Plus it was a lot of fun.”

The Aug. 29 Shredder was unfair and arrogant.
