Upon reading the article about me ("Watchdogs' Former Head Joins Ferguson," March 1), I'm afraid that a few points contained in the piece may be misconstrued, and I would like to offer clarification. First of all, the statement "Accuracy in Academia . . . opposes 'a progressive ideological orthodoxy' on college campuses" relies upon a phrase taken out of context from the mission statement. The complete sentence reads "We contend that academic freedom is threatened by a progressive ideological orthodoxy, pervasive in the intellectual community, which degrades professional standards in teaching and scholarship, and inhibits speech and research which contradict orthodox views."

The former executive director of the conservative watchdog group Accuracy in Academia has become the new chief of staff for Assemblyman Gil Ferguson (R-Newport Beach). Leslie Carbone, 27, said she passed up an offer to join the Buchanan for President campaign in order to work for Ferguson. "It was a difficult decision for me to make because I admire both Gil and Pat Buchanan so much," Carbone said. "But I felt I could do more here."
