Freedom to Write

January 11, 2002

Re "Jailed Texas Crime Writer Is Released," Jan. 5: Since when do you have to be a published writer to be protected from federal prosecutors? Vanessa Leggett, in refusing to give up the names of her sources and then going to prison for 168 days to stand up for her principles, showed more courage and basic decency than anyone I have read about recently.
