Yikes! Thanks to Ms. Miller, we are all reminded that the neighborhood bully lives on. Omitting their full names from their letters may or may not have been a "cowardly" act, but it turned out to be smart. I would not blame anyone with opinions on such topics as the death penalty to choose to withhold their name.
There are many reasonable ways to use our right to privacy. Think anonymous tip, undercover agent, secret ballot, first-name-only radio talk show callers, secure Web sites, blurred-out faces and voice-changing devices for witnesses.
It may or may not be a safety issue, but the person who demands info about me is the last person I want to have it.
