After reading Thursday's Letters to the Editor about Tasergate, I must say kudos to the Alligator for allowing both sides to be heard and kudos to many in the student body for seeing the truth. I would think a telecommunication senior like Meyer would understand that it's not about what you say, but often about how you say it.
I might have the secret to the meaning of life, but if I stand on the side of the road and shout obscenities at people, nobody is going to listen. You may have the right to say what you want, but nobody ever said you could say it when you want.
The issue is not about free speech. If Meyer had asked his question in a calm, intelligent, and straightforward manner, I feel pretty certain he would have gotten an answer, albeit maybe not the answer he wanted. But the moment he lost his temper, he also lost his professionalism. I think Meyer owes the UF student body an apology for his callous and immature behavior.
