Seattle Times letters to the editor

Blagojevich’s impeachment

Judging the man by the cover he reads

What I really thought was interesting about the photo of Rod Blagojevich [“Ill. governor opts for TV, not trial,” News, Jan. 26] was the book he was carrying: “Warlord” by Carlo de Este.

I recognized it right away. It’s the story of Winston Churchill’s military leadership throughout his life. He was a great man indeed; it is a great story.

But I wonder whether the photograph was just another setup in Blagojevich’s life — an attempt to illicit some response favorable to his defense — as if we could tell something about his demeanor by the books he reads.
