   I apologize publicly to Kathleen Miller.
   I have learned in a private communication that the errors in WIlliam
Safire's column were his alone.  Safire's desire to ignore my work for eight years,
then to bury it, then to insult me recently, was his alone.
   Kathleen Miller has also told me that she has no influence at all over the
City section (that cannot possibly publish a "Big Apple" article now because
of two throw-away lines published eight years ago).
   A lot of wrong has been done by the NEW YORK TIMES, over an incredibly
long time, involving many editors, that has ruined the history of New York City
   Kathleen Miller is not an employee of the NEW YORK TIMES and is not
responsible for any of it.  I have now learned her (non-) role in this 12-year-old
mess, and I immediately apologize.
