No cheers for violence

  Dear HCN,

The attitude of the writer of "Three cheers for the arsonists at Vail" (HCN, 11/9/98), that the end justifies the means, is exactly the same as the attitude of those who cheered the death of the gay student in Wyoming, the attitude that led to the murder of the doctor in New York who performed abortions, and most recently the attitude that resulted in the shooting of Mexican gray wolves in New Mexico.
