Marcy, if any of us had been inclined to "turn a simple moral" out of the
complicated and confusing publicity surrounding the O.J.simpson case, your
thoughtful, vivid account of what it felt like to be in your university and
your country when the verdict came in would surely have made it difficult
to re-examine our impulses. Thank you for sharing your experiences of
yesterday. They help me sort out my own troubled reactions.
