Keeping Mum on 'Holiday'

Congratulations to Howard Suber for honoring Dalton Trumbo's request not to disclose Trumbo's connection with the screenplay for "Roman Holiday" ("Dalton Trumbo's Real Role in 'Roman Holiday,' " Counterpunch, Aug. 19). Apparently his ethics overruled his journalistic desire for a timely scoop.

The truth is that the story is just as interesting today as it would have been at the time it occurred. Also, the delay in the story's publication has injured far fewer people than if it had had a more timely release.
