    Dear Markos:After reviewing the facts,  I don't believe Joe's
    column was incorrect.

    Even though in fact Kos did not actually say what Klein says he said, on the occasion and for the reason that Klein says he said it?  I mean, can Time writers just lift any quote they want to from anyone, and mischaracterize the occasion of that quote, as long as there is some sort of higher truth revealed?  Isn't that basically the technique of fiction or poetry, not journalism?  Why doncha just admit that Klein screwed up?  Why the circling of the wagons here?
