Dear Sir:

The New York Times is often attacked for liberal prejudices, most of which I share. In order to minimize any damage to the reputation of the best newspaper the world has ever known, I ask you to seriously consider returning the 1932 Pulitzer Prize for Walter Duranty (what was it at the time, $500?) before or while the committee meets. It would be an act of justice and one of grace for your newspaper.
