Abstract "Footnotes!" Lexington Minute Man, March 14, 1968

Vincent McCrossen defends the column "Off the Blotter" written by a Mr. Lima, saying that the column is "usually well written," "informative," and "true." McCrossen agrees with Lima's assertion that recent Supreme Court decisions "have ear-marked our society for days of unrest [and] violence." Implies that members of the Supreme Court were selected by Moscow and Communists in the United States.

McCrossen extrapolates, based on Lima's attacker's poor grammar and spelling, that the attacker is a Liberal. McCrossen gives thanks that he began his education in a time when English, math, science, history, geography, French, Latin, Greek, Spanish, German, Russian, and Italian were taught in schools, as this knowledge has allowed him to form correct judgments on "phoneys."

At the end of the article:
"(Ed's Notes: Two phrases considered by the editors to be libelous were deleted from the above letter.)
