Richard Grayson has a letter in the New York Times in the Magazine section today (Sunday, November 21, 1999), "A Minority of One":
As an idealistic undergraduate at the City University of New York, I volunteered to work in Herman Badillo's 1973 mayoral campaign. So I was outraged to read in James Traub's article (Oct. 31) that "Badillo doesn't regret a syllable" of his bigoted remarks, in which, among other things, he referred to Hispanic immigrants as "Incas and Mayas who are, you know, five feet tall with straight hair."
I am not ashamed to have worked for the Herman Badillo of 1973, but only because I believe that the man I knew back then would be ashamed of his 1999 self.

Richard Grayson has a letter in the New York Times today (October 13, 1999), "Let Vice Presidents Run Solo":
To the Editor:
It astonishes me that Vice President Al Gore's advisers have not suggested the simplest, most effective way to distance himself from the Clinton Administration (news article, Oct. 11). With a little more than a year until the November 2000 general election and only about 15 months remaining in his term, Mr. Gore should resign as Vice President to devote himself full time to his Presidential candidacy.
Not only would Mr. Gore achieve his goal of distancing himself from President Clinton, he could also give up his Washington address and move full time to Nashville, where he has relocated his campaign.
