In "Any Method to Ginsburg's Madness?" (Opinion, March 14), Stephen Gillers attacks Monica Lewinsky's attorney, William H. Ginsburg, for making statements concerning his client. Gillers asserts that anything an attorney says during representation of a client can later be admitted in evidence against that client. As experienced criminal defense attorneys, we can say wholeheartedly that the only "madness" here is in Gillers' statement of law. The out-of-court statements of an attorney are no more admissible against a client than anybody else's out-of-court statements.

A giddy mix of embarrassment and thrill often emerges when people confront taboos. And that's what's happening with all the below-the-Beltway talk about Bill Clinton. Americans are titillated by the ubiquitous discussion of a young woman's claim that she had sex with the president.
