Letter to Southampton Press Editor

Dear Mr Shaw:

Your articles in recent weeks about day laborers and a proposed hiring site for Southampton have, in my opinion, been misleading in that they seem to say that the viewpoint of the Minutemen is shared widely by residents of the town.

Gavin Menu's article last week on Tim Bishop's meeting in Amagansett did not say that the

They are not Southampton.

The attached article shows the true nature of the Minutemen movement. I suggest you show this to all your reporters.
