I have always been reluctant to use this column to respond to readers’ letters, which are themselves responses to something I have written. After all, I have got my retaliation in first.Nor do I have a problem when readers disagree with me. Debate is healthy, the lifeblood of a newspaper like this one. I like to hear the dissenting voice when it is well informed and thoughtfully considered.But the reason I chose to return to the wolf this week is that I do have a problem when facts have not been permitted to interfere with the presentation of that counter-argument.
