Good job, Trib, with the editorial “Monsour's legacy: An inhospitable tale” (Jan. 11 and TribLIVE.com). Great job lambasting a man whose family hadn't even had the chance to lay him in his grave yet!

Anyone who spent more than five minutes with Dr. William Monsour could tell you he was not perfect, made his share of bad decisions and could be very confrontational. Nonetheless, they would also tell you that he dedicated his life to helping the sick and less fortunate who could not afford health insurance.

Of course, as the Trib makes a living selling news, it wouldn't know a whole lot about helping others.

The editors of the Trib and Richard Gazarik, writer of the news story “Monsour Medical Center founder recalled for intensity, short temper,” have reached a new all-time low by vilely attacking the late Dr. Monsour and his family as they grieve the loss of their family member. Disgusting!
