Truth Matters   

I'm just writing in to let you know that I deeply appreciated your commentary in AJR's February/March Full Court Press. As a small-town journalist, I can get discouraged by the selfishness and pettiness I see reflected in a lot of publications. Your honesty in confronting a genuine problem lack of truthfulness in biography and autobiographical memoirs is incredibly important. We need more reporters who are not afraid to call things what they are.
