LETTERS : What was Forbes thinking?

November 17, 2009

Re "Forbes' recognition of cartel boss irks Mexicans," Nov. 14

This article, while newsworthy, appropriately deserved to be exiled to Page A23. It is repugnant for any publication, especially one as revered as Forbes, to showcase a despicable drug trafficker on its purported list of "movers and shakers."

No doubt there are many criminals who are very powerful, having profited from crime and the degradation it brings to civilized society. To elevate such miscreants to any semblance of status, however, is a decision that Forbes should regret. It owes its readers an apology.
