Homophobic, Much?

RECEIVED Mon., Dec. 18, 2017

Dear Editor,
    Your reporter wrote – and presumably some editor thought it OK – that city manager candidate Spencer Cronk "swished the heel of his shoe" while at the podium ["So You Want to Be Austin's City Manager," News, Dec. 15]. Oh good lord, you gotta be kidding me. I'm a straight guy in my 60s, raised in Texas my whole life, and even I know that's wrong. You owe Mr. Cronk an apology and your readers an explanation.
Rob Alberts
   [News Editor Chase Hoffberger responds: The word "swish" has multiple meanings, including "to move with a hissing or rushing sound."]
