A Reader Writes

We got a quick reader response to our posting earlier today about Alijandra Mogliner's article titled "Growing Up Republican" in the American Chronicle, a left-of-the-aisle online news site.

Our reader questions the accuracy of Mogliner's piece:

I just read the article "Growing up Republican" and it just does not pass the smell test.

Is there really a person with the credentials indicated, or is this column a plant for whatever reason. Attention to spelling failed with one word in the text. (I will let you find the word.)

The person's name, schooling, and bio info, not to mention the lack of reference to local people or institutions, look phony to me.

Truth be told, we don't know. Never heard of Mogliner or the American Chronicle before. However, seems like she's a real person (unlike we here at the Insider, who are just a bunch of 1's and o's).
