“Kathleen, this letter is, in fact, for Lee Harrison, whose article of today on airport security measures I have just read.
“Lee, your article about your experience in the Panama airport is a perfect response to anybody who asks me, ‘Why on earth I would want to leave the U.S.?’

I wanted to let you know that, from now on, when someone asks me that question, I am not going to attempt to explain my reasons to them. Instead, I will say, ‘I won’t give you an answer right at this moment, but let me send you an e-mail that will give you some idea of why I’m wanting to live outside the United States.
