Calling Sarah Palin names

Friday, November 19, 2010; 6:10 PM

The fact that Hank Stuever must resort to name calling - "Who is this woman, this fruit bat in fleece . . . ." - in the opening sentence of his television preview of "Sarah Palin's Alaska" [Style, Nov. 10] was disappointing. If he does not like Sarah Palin, then let him call her names on the editorial page.

He could have simply said, "I watched the show, I didn't understand it and I don't recommend it."
