Biographical/Historical abstract:

Additional contributor: Robert W. Watson

Description: One page letter from B. Marion Simmons to Robert W. Watson regarding his essay "Media Martyrdom", published in the March 1980 issue of Harper's, about the murder of five Communist Worker's Party members at the Death to the Klan rally, in Greensboro, North Carolina. Simmons commends Watson, and says that the anonymous man's comment that the event amounted to "three fleas on a dog" is an appropriate observation.
