'Bodyguard of Lies': An Exchange from the October 14, 1976 issue

To the Editors:

Mr. Cave Brown, in his contribution to your issue of October 14, has invoked in his defense a splendid new version of Morton’s Fork. Michael Foot has had no access to the documents dealing with deception and is therefore ignorant. I have had access, and am therefore biased. Neither of us is therefore competent to criticize him. He can’t lose.
