Judy Miller: She’s ‘Worn Out’ Writing in Jail

By: E&P Staff

At least two reporters who have sent notes or queries to New York Times reporter Judith Miller in detention in Virginia have received form letter replies, thanking them for their interest but suggesting that her hand is “worn out” from answering other mail or, one imagines, keeping a journal.

Here is the note they receive, which identifies Miller as inmate #45560083:

“I would love to answer personally but there is no typewriter in jail and my hand is worn out….Jail is certainly not how I imagined spending the summer, but it was the only course my conscience would allow….Write your senators or members of Congress and urge them to support a federal shield law for reporters.”
