Running Mate, Running Comment
As a Republican, I feel you insult the intelligence of your readers by your laudatory, transparently one-sided, and gossipy story on Senator Nixon [TIME, Aug. 25]. Is not his congressional record a bit more important than the fact that he lived in a shack during law school, and his skill at getting the vote by using nonpolitical issues? What about his record concerning: housing, price control, governmental reorganization, taxation, the steel dispute and tidelands oil?

Congratulations on your clear, explicit write-up on Richard Nixon....
