In the Spirit of Law
Sir / Judge John J. Sirica symbolizes the American people's concern for truth. Congratulations on the most appropriate choice in recent years.
Sir / This has not been a very good year, so I have no quarrel with the selection of Judge Sirica as Man of the Year except to note that the man chosen was simply performing his sworn duty, which is to uphold the law. However, this, by today's standards, may be enough of a rarity to justify such recognition.
