Press Coverage Followup

Following up on "Press Coverage of the Impeachment Vote", I've heard that today's Boston Herald has published my letter commenting on their coverage. To remind everyone, my complaint was that their article about Brookline Town Meeting passing a resolution urging the impeachment of Bush opened with this sentence: "The town that voted last year to outlaw spanking voted last night to send President Bush to the woodshed over the Iraq War."

In my letter, I pointed out that this was factually incorrect, as the anti-spanking resolution passed had been a non-binding resolution, and did not have the force of law. I am heartened by the fact that the Herald has printed my letter, although I do wish I could find it online.
