'Chronicle' Should Be Careful With Labeling

RECEIVED Mon., Dec. 8, 2003

Thank you for the article by Rachel Proctor May regarding the Uncovered movie parties ["Not Your Average Movie Night," Screens, Dec. 5]. I plan to attend, as do many people I know. I do not consider myself to be part of a group of "hipsters, activists, or rabble-rousers." I have a graduate degree, a 35-year professional career as an RN, LCSW, and most of the people I know who are attending are also educated and professional. I/we love our country and our democracy. We also hope to preserve it. We see it as terribly threatened by the current administration. An active, educated, participatory population is essential to a healthy democracy. Please be careful with your labeling. Is objectivity forever gone from journalism?
