I wish to ardently express my support for Loose Lips and his appraisal of Mark Plotkin and the D.C. Politics Hour (11/6). The criticisms leveled against LL about his column reflect the opinions of a minority. I have for years listened and will continue to listen to the show. However, I, and anyone I have talked to about the show, believe the listeners would be better served by a balanced presentation that represented the views of the majority of Washingtonians, not just a select few. Mr. Plotkin has shown he can be an astute commentator when he broadens his scope. Although I appreciate Mr. Plotkin’s “passion,” I wish it were sometimes substituted with sober judgment. The magnitude of passion does not necessarily reflect the magnitude of the underlying truth.
