A GOOD HOT SHOWER Reader MA can't take it anymore. After hearing a week of elite media praise for the Nixon pardon, she offers her dissent, writing:
Tricky Dick got a get out of jail free card. We all felt what we had [already] been through was the challenge... hearings that were remarkable for the way good people of both parties tried hard to do the right thing.

The republic was up to the challenge. Ultimately, the system worked. There WAS NOT this tremendous need for healilng. When Nixon left, there was simply the need to take a good hot shower. In the end, we wanted justice and Ford denied us.
