Dear Friend,

There have been a surfeit of editorials surrounding Arafat's death. For example, on Friday, November 12 alone, there were 32 editorials from my usual newspaper sources. On that day a number of newspapers had three distinct editorials about Arafat, and the New York Times had four! I have separated the 23 I have selected into those specifically about Arafat's life and those about the implications of his death. Within those categories, the most interesting and insightful ones are near the top.
