In Response to: The P Source

Professor Graham always has something interesting to say and says it well. I have two questions about her latest article, “The P Source”: Why did she (or PAW’s editor) identify Kermit Roosevelt Jr. as T.R.’s grandson, but omit any mention of his role in the 1953 coup that overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran and installed Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi on the Peacock Throne? Did Kermit’s description of T. Cuyler Young *25 as too hard to handle reflect a fear on Kermit’s part that Young would oppose the coup and attempt to thwart it?
