I just read the Editor’s Column of Sept. 11 and was surprised by comments regarding issues unrelated to credit unions, i.e. U.S. foreign relations and the president.  Although these items may indicate a general tendency these days toward prevarication, in my opinion, Credit Union Times should stay away from areas unrelated to credit union issues, particularly those in today’s highly charged political arena. The Times should, in my view, even in editorial comments, concentrate on using credit union examples to make points as you did with the Markland statement and the investment banking example. If other examples are necessary to make a point, and a credit union one is not available, I would suggest finding one that avoids political controversy.
