Not Exactly Summer Camp

Not Exactly Summer Camp

The New York Times’ Judith Miller, or Inmate No. 45570083 at the Alexandria jail is providing the most interesting “letters home” of the summer. Some of those who have written Miller are receiving a form note in return, reports Washington Whispers’ Paul Bedard.

“I would love to answer personally,” she says, “but there is no typewriter in jail and my hand is worn out.” She continues, “Jail is certainly not how I imagined spending the summer, but it was the only course my conscience would allow.”

Miller also asks recipients to “Write your senators or members of Congress and urge them to support a federal shield law for reporters.”
