A Powerful Hankering 

Editor:
Among the by-lines that I always look forward to: Garrison Keillor, Paul Krugman, Leonard Pitts, John Driscoll, Amy Stewart and Hank Sims. When will Hank Sims return?


Chip Sharpe, Bayside


Editor:
With last week's resignation of Hank Sims, the Journal lost not only a fine editor but Humboldt's most astute political and cultural observer.  His Town Dandy column had its finger on the pulse of events, and was a must-read.
As for his replacement, Tom Abate, his swipe last week against raw milk advocates and parents-of-conscience who courageously choose not to vaccinate, displayed a woeful ignorance on both topics.  Worse, the attack on "leftie mothers," [Hey, fathers are parents, too!] betrayed, at best, a subconscious gender bias.  A rookie mistake the erudite Mr. Sims never would have made.
To paraphrase the late Senator Lloyd Bentsen: Mr. Abate, you are no Hank Sims.
