LETTERS TO THE TIMES

Poor Debate Scheduling

August 06, 2004

The Times reports that all four debates -- three presidential and one vice presidential -- will be squeezed into a 13-day time frame ("Eventually, Nov. 2," July 30).

The campaign drags on for months, with nothing much going on for weeks at a time. And then the most meaningful and illuminating component of the campaign is dispensed with in a two-week blitz, as if to get it out of the way.

It would be in the public interest to have the debates spread out -- say, one every two weeks -- so voters have more time to think, talk and read about them.
