Shame on you, Baltimore Sun, for the article on "Shadow over Ray Lewis' life" (Jan. 11). At a time when many of us are celebrating a the conclusion of a glorious sports career with Ray's announced retirement, you choose to publish this article detailing events of 13 years ago. This unfortunate episode involving Mr. Lewis' personal life has been examined and re-examined ad-nauseum throughout his career. Why would you choose to bring it up again at this time?
Yes, this was a tragic event. However, we cannot do anything about the past, nor can Mr. Lewis. For the life of me, I cannot understand how this paper condoned this article especially when you have given Mr. Lewis accolades, praise, and wonderful coverage. This was, tacky, inappropriate and wrong.
Everyone has a past, and everyone has done things they wish they could take back. It seems there will always be those folks who will never let us forget it.
