In his Jan. 14 column, David Shribman is mistaken in his assessment of the thoughts, feelings and memories of the American people. Although we are turned off by the impeachment procedure, we are not inattentive. We are aware of how our congressmen voted and the views of our senators.
We are not glued to the spectacle on television but we are very interested in the State of the Union. We know that the fate of our president matters because although he has faults, he works for us. We have not forgotten about Washington, as Shribman suggests. Rather, we get on with our jobs. And we will remember those in Washington who get on with theirs when we get to the polls where, finally, we'll be heard.
