Slate's Fred Kaplan explains why and how President
Bush should answer Iranian President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad's letter. This is the kind of thinking I
was contemplating when I addressed this topic
recently, likening it to a newsgroup exchange.

The essay opens with this:

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's
18-page letter to President Bush is a bizarre
document. ... Even the Wall Street Journal
editorial page isn't off the mark in likening
the letter's philosophical depth to that of the
Unabomber's soliloquies."

And it closes with this:

"Bush and Ahmadinejad—two of the world's
most stubborn, self-righteous leaders. It's at
once hopeful and pathetic that the next step
in their confrontation—whether it intensifies
or slackens—could be determined by whether
Bush answers or brushes off a goofy letter."
