Good One

From the letters section of this edition of Time magazine.

PERHAPS RATHER CAN LEARN HOW EASY IT is for a good leader to act on bad information produced by a normally reliable staff. Rather and President Bush have more in common than the CBS anchor would probably like to admit. BOB BAIMA Dunwoody, Ga.

I think this one observation says more about this election, on a per word basis, than just about anything else I've heard.

Weren't those memos authenticated? I remember reading a study by some professor that validated the authenticity of the Bush memos in question. I'm sure that reader's letter was written without knowledge of the study.

Well, there was an attempt at a study by one Professor, but that study itself came under scrutiny. A good summary can be found here. In any case, many of the experts who indicated that they were forgeries stand by their claims. In the end sum of the he said/she said of expert witnesses, at this point it appears that the weight of testimony supports the assertion that the documents were not authentic.
