Richard Herbst writes: "Only a personal injury lawyer would write a Lettre de Cachet like the black adventure story published in USA Today. My sympathies for their reduced ad revenues and declining circulation. But holding public executions and sensational smear campaigns has never worked for any publication. Even the networks hesitate to raise their viewing by attacking privilege. They should know this.

They hope to boost circulation and redefine themselves as a rag, which they aren't far from in any case." Click through to read the full text of this letter and other mail from AVweb readers. More
