Well She Has Always Depended Upon the Kindness of Strangers

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Professor Tom McPhail has a new pen pal. McPhail, who teaches media studies at the University of Missouri at St. Louis, wrote to Judith Miller, the New York Times reporter sent to jail for refusing to identify her sources in the Valerie Plame case. Miller wrote back to McPhail to thank him for his “kind words and expressions of support.” She added that she would have written more but “there is no typewriter in jail and my hand is worn out.” The letter was on letterhead from Alexandria Detention Center in Alexandria, Va., and listed Miller’s inmate number.

Yeah endlessly jerking off Bill Keller must be exhausting.

Cue the violins.
