Letter: Math on hate/anti-government groups adds up
Editor of the Reformer,
Re: Letter to the editor, "Claim on Vermont hate groups was erroneous," in the Reformer's May 6 edition:
If Mr. Keefe had carefully read the sentence "According to the Southern Poverty Law Center our state harbors five hate or anti-government groups that espouse violence" and then looked at the SPLC website he would have noted Vermont harbors one hate group and four anti-government groups. One plus four equals "five hate or anti-government groups." Ergo, my statement was not erroneous as claimed by Mr. Keefe.
