In response to “Developer injured, man killed in crash,” Sept. 21: Why was it important for The Spokesman-Review to allow the further identification of Harley Douglass by including family and business-government controversies and disputes in an article of such a serious and personal matter? I am guessing The Spokesman just could not resist coloring the article to the darker side.

Although I am not aware, I suspect that Harley Douglass has developed many positive projects by which he could have been identified, but I am guessing that such is not what modern journalism is all about.
