A colleague directed me to this wonderfully disturbing letter from Scooter Libby to Judy Miller, when she was in prison in 2005. Libby was attempting to persuade Miller to give in to Patrick Fitzgerald’s demand for a subpoena. An excerpt:
“You went into jail in the summer. It is fall now. You will have stories to cover — Iraqi elections and suicide bombers, biological threats and the Iranian nuclear program. Out west, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them. Come back to work — to life.”
