As Jerry Roberts' colleague of many years (two of them
as his managing editor at the News-Press), I've
watched from afar as our former employer has marshaled
her considerable fortune to personally attack an
honorable man and talented journalist . I didn't think
I 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 and
reputations of innocent people:

"Have you no sense of decency?"

And I'd like to remind the people of Santa Barbara
that false charges like those leveled by Ms. McCaw -- no
matter how fanciful -- require a legal response. Legal
responses cost money. That's why I've worked with
Jerry's friends and colleagues in Northern California
to raise money for the Lawyers Alliance for Free
Speech Rights.

Please contribute to this legal defense
fund so that Jerry and other threatened by Ms. McCaw's
bullying are able to fight back.

Send your checks to the Lawyers Alliance for Free Speech Rights, PO Box 22557, Santa Barbara, 93121.
