Opua: differing opinions
Three readers have written recently to tell me that in the letters section of the current LATITUDE 38, pages 20-22, Webb Chiles is called both a misguided fool and a national hero.
Actually the man who calls me a fool doesn’t know my name and isn’t certain what kind of boat I’m sailing, but has an opinion anyway.
I replied to one correspondent:
It goes with the territory.
On the other hand, it is a point of law that one is entitled to be judged by one’s peers. I don’t have any.
