Larry Pressler: Plenty Smart And Plenty Honest


Readers Report

LARRY PRESSLER: PLENTY SMART--AND PLENTY HONEST

"Senator Dangerfield?" (News: Analysis & Commentary, Feb. 27) was way off the mark. I have known Larry Pressler (R-S.D.) since the day he came to the Senate in 1979. Those of us who know him well know that he is very bright and, indeed, probably one of the most intellectual members of the Senate.

Larry Pressler may get no respect, but as his classmate at Harvard Law School, I can attest that he is plenty smart. He is also plenty honest. If you review your ancient files on Abscam, you will note that he once before demonstrated singular integrity. This virtue may be of benefit to us all, as his Senate Commerce Committee looks at deregulation of telecommunications. With so much money involved, we are well served by this honest and decent man.
