MARYKNOLL PRIEST RECEIVES A FAIR SHAKE IN NEWS STORY

The Sept. 30 article on Maryknoll Father Roy Bourgeois was much appreciated. It was the first positive article on his actions that I had seen in any U.S. newspapers.

Exposing the truth about the "School of the Assassins" had cost Roy (and Maryknoll) a great deal of misunderstanding and even hostility over many years. Now the record is finally being set straight, although there is still a long way to go. The souls of the church's raped, tortured and martyred sisters, priests and lay associates in Central America will never lie in true peace so long as the School of the Americas stays open.

The issue is not whether to give Roy a presidential pardon or not, but what has to be done to finally close the school.
