Dear Connie Morella: Finally I can vote for you—I live in the new “contorted piece of squash” (“Angel From Montgomery,” 7/5). That is, I can but I can’t—not so long as you remain a Republican.

Clearly you’re not about to become a Democrat. Have you considered becoming an independent? I’d like to think it would be a better fit for you, and you’d have my vote.

Takoma Park, Md.
