Today’s lukewarm endorsement of Bill Fazio for district attorney ["Fazio for S.F. district attorney," Oct. 10] listed as one of The Recorder‘s primary reservations his ostensible “flip-flop” on the death penalty. Having discussed this matter with him extensively more than four years ago, I know that his position then was the same as now reported in your editorial. Fazio tries to balance his oath to comply with existing law with the extraordinary injustice of an erroneous execution; if the position seems muddled, the law’s conflicting demands are to blame. He didn’t flip-flop on this one. Peter G. Hanson San Francisco
