Quoting from your paper (Part I, May 10), Regan said of publishing his book now: "They dismissed me--why should I wait?"
Two reasons might be: (1) Revenge would not be as sweet, (2) It certainly would not sell as well. What kind of disgruntled patriot, (which he said he was) would defame his President in the midst of crucial arms negotiations . . . because he got canned? This former Marine has lost his true grit.
Regan's cop-out, the famous "the public has a right to know," cannot conceal the lack of character which prompted these actions and perhaps explain the reason that he was "dismissed." Many crimes of sensationalism through the media have been committed for personal or corporate gain with that lame excuse.
