Good Riddance to Gonzales

To the Editor:

Re “Gonzales Must Be Impeached” [Aug. 6]:

There will be much speculation in the coming days and weeks as to just why disgraced Attorney General Alberto Gonzales chose this time to leave the sinking barge that the Bush administration has become.

I say just let it go. Let’s just be grateful that he will soon be gone, and the fumigation process will soon begin.

For years now, I have thought that John Mitchell, Richard Nixon’s co-conspirator, was the worst attorney general in American history. Alberto Gonzales makes Mitchell look like a boy scout.
