Another thank you, this time sincere

To John Ashcroft, for putting up with four years of being caricatured and demonized, by sharing with Bush the distinction of being the living person most frequently compared to Hitler, for putting forward a surprisingly restrained Patriot Act, given the situation we're in and past responses to dangers at home and abroad.

I don't know if I'd have the courage or generosity to stay in such a thankless job when I could go home to Missouri and sit on the porch.
