As Jerry Roberts' colleague of many years (two of themas his managing editor at the News-Press), I'vewatched from afar as our former employer has marshaledher considerable fortune to personally attack anhonorable man and talented journalist . I didn't thinkI could be surprised any more by her tactics.
Until this week.
To Ms. McCaw, I'd ask the same question that Sen.Joseph McCarthy was asked, after he had gone too far,too many times, in his attempts to ruin the lives andreputations of innocent people:
"Have you no sense of decency?"
And I'd like to remind the people of Santa Barbarathat false charges like those leveled by Ms. McCaw -- nomatter how fanciful -- require a legal response. Legalresponses cost money. That's why I've worked withJerry's friends and colleagues in Northern Californiato raise money for the Lawyers Alliance for FreeSpeech Rights.
Please contribute to this legal defensefund so that Jerry and other threatened by Ms. McCaw'sbullying are able to fight back.
Send your checks to the Lawyers Alliance for Free Speech Rights, PO Box 22557, Santa Barbara, 93121.--Linda Strean
