Actually its: "I wrote a letter and sent it to a public newspaper with the
request they publish the letter, and now I don't want some people to see
that letter (after they published it at my request), and I want it taken
out of the archives of that newspaper (despite it being a well-known
public archive, that everyone knows about and uses."
Judge: "Why did you send it to the public newspaper and request it be
published, if you didn't want people to see the letter?"
You: "I didn't know the address of the public newspaper "Letters to the
Editor" meant the public newspaper "Letters to the Editor," I thought they
would just forward it on to a few folks I know about."
Judge: "Why are you here?"
