Fielding a team 

Mr. Crowther:

Your column regarding Bob Woodward and the timid press (“Fatal balance: An Ice Age falls on the newsroom,” April 26) put a lump in my throat. I’ve been searching for nearly two years for a way to express my frustration with the business, and you put it all out there for me. I applauded every word, right down to the prepositions.

“But in this late phase of a warped society, we take the field with the team that shows up to play.” I want you on that team.
