I got a letter from Mrs. Ava Arpaio yesterday, begging me to contribute to the Sheriff Joe Legal Defense Fund. That's Joe Arpaio, "the toughest sheriff in America," now facing contempt charges. Among other things, he has cost the taxpayers of Maricopa County (Phoenix, Arizona) a small fortune in settlements paid to people whom he and his deputies have wronged. I considered writing a note to tell Mrs. Arpaio that I definitely would not contribute, but decided not to. It would hardly do any good, and whatever a man's misdeeds, it would not be seemly to mock a woman whose husband of many years is facing jail and disgrace.

Nonetheless, the appeal for funds was torn up and deposited in the recycling bin.
