Regarding the front-page article about Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and apparent underage drinking [“Gansler says he should’ve been vigilant at teen party,” Oct. 25]:

Don’t we have more important issues that warrant front-page attention? It appears from the article that Gansler walked into a teen party at the beach in search of his son because he did not respond to a text message. There may or may not have been underage drinking at the party. And your point is what? It looks to me like Gansler was acting as a responsible parent should, checking in on his son at a rental property at the beach.

Using front-page space to inform readers about this issue seems like little more than a lame effort to discredit this candidate. I expect more from The Post.
