"I have read your editorial of Thursday 15 May 1952, which has the heading 'He Will
Stay at Home.' I assume that you will now give your readers the benefit of a similar
editorial, informing them that, although there has been no change in the situation,
the State Department, less than three months later, has reversed its decision and
has issued me a passport. I have not received any apology, such as was made to Professor
Lattimore, but I think that the passport itself serves as an apology."
Linus Pauling. Letter to the Editor of The Dallas Morning News. July 15, 1952.
