Zoe Baird and the People's Choice

The reason for the rejection of Zoe Baird as attorney general is purportedly that she broke the law and therefore cannot be expected to represent it. However, the underlying tone in constituent opposition was envy at her $507,000-a-year salary. There is little hope for renewal if the nation continues to base decisions on envy and greed. Incidentally, doesn't mercy go hand in hand with justice? T. White, Arlington, Va.
