Many readers have written commenting on our post on Chris Matthews’s recent talk in Toronto and his message to us (and others) last night. In his message Matthews advised us to track down the students in Toronto — I suppose that would necessarily be one at a time, following his brilliant strategy for the war — who invited him to speak.
