Defending Jill Carroll

Do the Boston Herald’s Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa eat mean pills for breakfast? Their “Inside Track” piece deserves every one-star rating it gets. Too bad the options don’t include “zero.” While hanging out with friends at a bar, Carroll tells a Fox TV reporter that she doesn’t want to do an interview. Fee and Raposa take that as license to deride Carroll’s undergraduate degree, her personality, and the 82 days she spent as a hostage in Iraq.

It’s always the wrong people who are taken hostage. The best candidates never put themselves at risk.
