'Chronicle's Treatment of Kinky Unfair

RECEIVED Mon., Oct. 23, 2006

Dear Editor,
    More than half the article endorsing Chris Bell for governor was devoted to denigrating Kinky Friedman [“Endorsements,” Oct. 20]. To compare Kinky with the current president was low-down. Kinky has run a clean, honest campaign and his views on the issues are clearly laid out for those who care to read and listen. The real joke is not Kinky, but rather that the Chronicle endorses the trained politicians who do not rise above the slick, politically correct solutions that have gotten us where we are today. Go Kinky!
