Politically Incorrect and Hardly Run-of-the-Mill

July 19, 1998

Thanks for the article on Bill Maher ("Wicked Wit of the West," by Michael J. Ybarra, June 14). He's a complicated man, one not easily pigeon-holed. He's certainly not the King of Nice, but he does host the most interesting talk show around. I don't always agree with him, but he is always engaging and presents a forum for more than just pushing the latest Hollywood product.

Maher doesn't need a puff piece; he needs a psychiatrist. His deep hostilities toward women are obvious. Of course, Jay Leno is just as bad. Perhaps I should turn off the tube and get to sleep early.

Regarding the Wicked Wit of the West: Would that be half-, dim- or nit-?

Ybarra says of Maher: "He also styles himself as a moralist, a libertarian Bob Bennett . . . ." I believe Ybarra is confusing Bob Bennett with Bennett's brother Bill, who brought us the "Book of Virtues." Brother Bob wants to keep Clinton's book of vices from us.
