Re "Media Add Their Lines to Script," Aug. 4, describing the Republican convention in Philadelphia as overly "scripted," I can say from personal experience that this was not the case. I was asked on July 28 to give a speech to the convention at its opening session on July 31. No one told me what to say or even made suggestions as to possible topics or ideas. I wrote the speech myself and no one changed it. When I gave the speech to the convention, it conveyed my personal views and beliefs.

Republican P. Gregory Conlon has what might be the perfect resume to run for state treasurer--if only he could roll back the clock about two years. A former president of the California Public Utilities Commission, Conlon was one of the architects of the state's energy deregulation scheme, hailed at the time but widely viewed now as a costly train wreck. Before that, he spent 30 years with Arthur Andersen--that's right, the accounting firm at the center of the Enron financial scandal.
