Weigel criticism of Father Hesburgh unwarranted

George Weigel’s latest diatribe on the University of Notre Dame (CR, March 4) and the state of Catholic higher education in general crossed the line with his subtle slap at Holy Cross Father Theodore Hesburgh. The former president of this great university has done more for Catholic higher education in this nation, and humanity as a whole, than Weigel has ever done. Weigel owes this holy man and his beloved university an apology.
