Joyce Hoffman: Who needs enemies with a friend like this?

In his Other Voices column, Steve Enos alluded to The Vatican, Elvis and John Steinbeck. He did so to distract from any negative intentions he had in submitting his anonymous letter, which led to the investigation of Terry Lamphier.

The Vatican is a beautiful city with some of the finest Italian Renaissance art. Elvis still has a lot of fans who love him. Steinbeck was one of our greatest authors. I am insulted that he would use them to add levity and sarcasm to what is, in my opinion, a tragedy.

Perhaps Enos should reflect upon the fact that his actions have ruined someone’s life. Instead he chooses to imply that Terry’s supporters are conspiracy lunatics who cannot accept Terry’s guilt before even being tried.

Is this what you’d expect from a person who was a former friend and associate? Who needs enemies when you have friends like this?
