It has been 140 years since the Republican Party overtook the Whigs, and no new political party has achieved mainstream status since. But the 20th Century is littered with the political corpses of brave candidates who tried. Historically, when third-party movements or independent candidacies began to gain acceptance, the major parties have simply expropriated their most potent ideas, said Leslie H. Southwick, author of the book, "Presidential Also-Rans and Running Mates."

In what was otherwise a very nice article ("Singer John Denver Killed in Plane Crash," Oct. 14), we were reminded of the time that Denver stated that he believed he epitomized America; then, the article stated, "Or at least, white, mainstream America." Why did that distinction have to be made? I know that we whites are more responsible for the huge sales generated for every rap group. Does that make Notorious B.I.G. only for "white, mainstream America"? How many blacks bought Denver albums?
