In the years I have been writing this op-ed I recall receiving only two letters and several emails. The latter have been mostly complimentary.
Both letters, on the other hand, were pretty harsh. The first, written back in the second George W. Bush administration, accused me of being a conservative and âa Karl Rove stoogeâ. The latter charge I found interesting since I have never met or spoken to Mr. Rove and he wouldnât know me if he bumped into me on the street.
