Boston Globe: N.H. should reassess legacy of Sen. Styles Bridges

But the Nov. 12 issue of The New Yorker contained an uncomfortable wake-up call: Alex Ross, the magazine's classical-music critic, wrote an essay on changing attitudes toward homosexuality that included this passage: &#';In an episode loosely dramatized in the novel and movie 'Advise and Consent,' Senator Lester Hunt, of Wyoming, killed himself after Styles Bridges, a senator from New Hampshire, threatened to expose Hunt's son as a homosexual. Bridges still has a highway named after him.&#';
