17. You ask "What does Helen think we should do?"
She has a LOT of very strong opinions on that subject, but please keep in mind that she is not only a friend, but
also, her age not withstanding, a full time working journalist. Although her broader views are pretty obvious, her
specific comments at a private dinner off the record are not mine to list in detail. My father was a colleague of
hers for over forty years, and I learned in no uncertain terms that when something is off the record, it should
stay that way. Enough outside lurkers, both good and bad (Raw Story-good, and freepers-bad) peruse these pages to
warrant respect that. Please feel free to email her if you want to try getting her to open up on any subject like
that. She usually does answer emails, although not often in great detail, probably due to the time necessary to delete
all the hate mail she still gets.
