As American writers we believe in free speech, and defend Salman Rushdie's right to publish his books without fear of physical reprisal. Although many Muslims are genuinely distressed and offended by Rushdie's book, they should be equally outraged by the terrorist fanatics in Iran who have put a bounty on his head.

As E.M. (Mick) Nathanson laughingly observes, his credit on "The Dirty Dozen" TV series flashes by in about half a second. If you blink, you've missed it: "Based on characters from a novel by E.M.
