I note that Wambaugh tends to blame attorneys for his legal problems ("The Crimes of Joseph Wambaugh," by Sean Mitchell, Feb. 26). I believe in and would defend Wambaugh's right to write about any subject, fiction or nonfiction, that inspires him. In exercising this right, your article estimates, Wambaugh realizes a return of about $1 million per book. Obviously, Wambaugh would like to keep exercising this right both as an expression of his creative freedom as well as for economic gain. On the other hand, when certain individuals feel abused by Wambaugh's work, he would deny them the right to seek redress.
