Editor:

Jack Neworth’s column of today is a keeper (“Sore winners or sour grapes?” Nov. 15). He has hit so many nails on the head, it will serve as a reference for the craziness of the election year of 2012. Also, he might have added the stealth of the 2004 “re-election” of George Bush, amply documented in Harper’s Magazine in 2005 and in the current issue, and summarized in chapter 31 of Gore Vidal’s book, “Point to Point Navigation.”

Thank you, Jack Neworth, for a great column, insightful as to facts, and entertaining, to boot.
