Dear Roger, Thank you for your letter.

I have indeed received many calls this morning from those offended and disturbed by your use of the expression “Nazi attitudes” in reference to officials at National Public Radio. I wish you had never invoked that terminology. As you know, Nazi comparisons are becoming all-too commonplace in the public square. They are clearly inappropriate and only serve to denigrate the memory of those who perished in the Holocaust. Having said that, I believe your apology and explanation is sincere and heartfelt, and I appreciate your effort to immediately retract your words before they did any further harm. Apology and explanation accepted. Best Regards. Sincerely, Abe
