The Honorable James Webb,
I have just finished reading your column from last Thursday’s Wall Street journal – “Diversity and the myth of White Privilege.” You are to be commended for having the courage to reach out and touch the proverbial “third rail” of politics. I found your piece to be insightful and it had exactly the right tone. It made me think of the James Webb that I encountered when I was a young Marine captain at AWS when you came to speak to our class in 1984. Believe it or not, at least one story you told then stuck with me all these years. All of my correspondence with you since you have become one of my Senators has been to try to prevent you from helping the Reid-Pelosi axis of evil succeed. I have been roundly disappointed in your responses and your voting record. However today I am proud of what you have done to try and calm the racial hysteria of today’s left. I hope that this theme will guide your approach to legislation for the remainder of your time in office.
