No more politicsI was very disappointed to read the two letters under "Unfair to Bush and the feds" (Dec. 19, 2005-Jan. 8, 2006, page 7). Hopefully, Accounting Today is not going to become a vehicle for disgruntled conservatives and liberals to spew their propaganda and talking points. They have plenty of other outlets in which to rant.
David M. Ebner's attack on Glenn Cheney (in Ebner's own words) "was clearly a cheap shot and completely unfair and uncalled for." I am amazed that Accounting Today would publish such a vicious diatribe.
Kip Dellinger states that, "Accounting Today has apparently now been co-opted by angry liberals for essentially political argument." He discusses far too many political issues which are more suited for the op-ed pages of the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times.
I read Accounting Today to keep informed of the professional issues facing the accounting professional. Let's not lose sight of that fundamental purpose, and put aside the politics. We have enough politics on a daily basis.
