As the story said, she was a pest. Activism involves being prepared to answer your enemies with verifiable facts and being persistent. If I had been on the committee reviewing Judge Wesley, I would have wanted to have all the facts, both favorable and unfavorable, before I cast my vote for confirmation. Actually, I don't call her a pest, I call her persistent. Webster's definition of the word pest is "one that pesters or annoys." She was being helpful. I am surprised that senators Clinton and Schumer, both self-declared liberals, would be contacting the Capitol police to complain about her phone calls and faxes. My respect for Hillary Rodham Clinton has gone down a few notches. Elena Sassower, whom I haven't met, I consider a friend and an ally.
Reading John Giuffo's "The Hitch" [February 28] has not changed my mind one bit on the total about-face of Hitchens, who has gone from radical critic to failed opportunist. Hitchens, like Dennis Miller and Dick Morris before him, is a skank with little integrity. Persons can indeed change their minds and opinions for moral reasons. This pathetic trio changed their minds for the gold.
I enjoyed Michael Feingold's take on Little Women's Sutton Foster ["Forced Marches," February 28]: "an appealing actress with a sparky personality and a distinctively angular physical style . . . (in Thoroughly Modern Millieshe appeared to be composed entirely of knees and elbows)."
Yes, exactly! As I watched her veering about the stage of the Virginia Theatre, I thought, "There's our Olive Oyl!"
I am a self-confessed magazine whore, and I can't believe other people out there are as bad as me.
