In the way emails thread their way from one person to another I came across the text of a speech about antics in the US Justice Department.
It was titled “An Open Letter to John Ashcroft” and came with this preface:
The following is a letter read by Claire Braz-Valentine, author at this year’s In Celebration of the Muse, Cabrillo College. It is worth knowing that the author is a woman of 60+ years, conservatively dressed and obviously quite talented.
I encourage everybody to read it here: An Open Letter to John Ashcroft.
