Riptide reader Dan Underhill just sent this letter to the House Judiciary Committee:
"I have just read that at least eight of your members are in favor of a return to the rule of law, but my Web searches have failed to turn up the number of people on your committee. Without that number, I can't tell if it is half of you or a tenth of you that have an interest in honoring your oaths of office. Protecting and defending the Constitution from mighty and and highly placed criminals is something that can not be done by your average policeman on the beat. That is why we have you. If Cheney is not guilty of the high crimes and misdemeanors that he appears to be guilty of, he is entitled to have that proven to us all in an impeachment hearing. If he is guilty, we the people need to know what happened to allow such miscreants into the highest offices in the land. We also need to know that the House Judiciary Committee is in service of the United States of America rather than some coalition of multinational corporations. I look forward to your response,"
