Doug Feith Takes Your Questions

Scout, who likes to raise my blood pressure as early as possible in the day, sends this over to the Doug Feith Desk here at First Draft World HQ. And I pass it along to you all.Be polite. Not because he deserves it, but because you do.

For what it’s worth, here are mine:

Why did your book not address the scandal overLarry Franklin’s resignation and subsequent guilty plea? Did you not feel it was important to explain why your office harbored a traitor?
