YAAAAY! The Strib Printed my letter!
Taking a coward's route

Judith Miller went to jail Wednesday for refusing to reveal her sources. It is sad irony that the person in the White House who is hiding behind her skirts does not have the same courage and integrity.

Bob XXXX, St Paul.

Following suggestions, I kept it as short as possible.
I personally think JM is a CorpoWhore who has blood on her hands for her propaganda during the rush to war, but was willing to praise her if it damned the bush* WhiteHouse.

I also avoided using the specific word "coward" because I thought it was too prejudicial for a LTTE. I am DELIGHTED that the Strib added it!!!

Congrats.

4. Most excellent!
Too bad they don't like long letters. You have such a great ability to make things clear. Keep up the good work!

5. well done, Bvar
A short, sharp jab is much more effective than a long-winded screed.

7. Excellent letter!
Short and pointed like a sharp stick to the eye of the Rapturistas.

8. yes, well done
I had not thought in those terms, either, you are right.

What I do, when the subject comes up, is remind folks that ol' Judith "Fuckin' Right" Miller is not a hero -- she is not protecting someone who is blowing the whistle on government wrongdoing (like Deep Throat) but rather someone "in" govenment trying to cause harm to a person and to the country.

15. That was a great letter!
I really liked that you pointed out the absence of "courage and integrity" of the White House source. They are all such a bunch of weasels.
