Subject: RE: 911 Anniversary: Tearing Off the Scabs?
Dear Bobert,

The only deal we have is to exchange books and ideas. There are five or six titles I'm still considering, and I'll pick one in a day or two.

Mr. Palast's book is available through the library here, and I've requested it.

By the way -- touche. I thought John Ashcroft gave a perfectly miserable interview the other day on the Today Show.

I've always liked him, and I can't believe he's as stupid and insensitive as his defensive and bureaucratic syntax would indicate.

As a conservative and Republican, I've never thought I need apologize to anyone for my principles. That, after all, is what the whole debate is about.

So you may be right. While I still think Mr. Ashcroft is a man of truth and integrity, his vision -- and, sadly, eduation -- may be too narrow for his current responsibilities.
