THIS STORY HAS BEEN FORMATTED FOR EASY PRINTING
ACKNOWLEDGING THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE

On the contrary, group's 'obsession' is very healthy

YOUR EDITORIAL "A good place for Blue Cross" charges that "some local Armenian-Americans and their supporters" are involved in an "unhealthy obsession." If by some local Armenian-Americans, you mean the entire Armenian-American community, then you are right. But these local Armenian-Americans are not engaged in an unhealthy obsession. They are simply asking that the memory of their 1.5 million dead not be fodder for realpolitik either internationally or locally. I guess as far as the Globe is concerned, the Armenian-American community has had its 15 minutes, and should know its place and stop complaining.

THE EDITORIAL "A good place for Blue Cross" is more like the Globe of the olden days, when it refused to even acknowledge the Armenian Genocide. It was only through the persistence of the Armenian-American community that the Globe was finally shamed into doing the right thing. This same persistence will make sure that the likes of the Anti-Defamation League, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, and others are also shamed into doing the right thing.
