Looks like open letter day around here...
Dear Alicia M. Cohn,
If your lede begins "Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani…", you're writing the wrong story.
Unless, of course, you're writing about 9-11, but since, when Rudy opined that he doesn't "...want a president to become a commentator on 10 Republican candidates,” he failed to point out the fact that 10 is the number that falls between 9 and 11, thereby bringing to mind a titillating 9-11 anecdote that might have provided some rationale for seeking his views in the first place, well, you wrote the wrong story.
Better luck next time.
Very truly yours,
