To the editors:

Bravo to Alida Jatich and to the Reader for breaking the Bettelheim story. All credit is due her for having the courage to write (Letters, July 13), and the Reader for being willing to print a story that has finally penetrated into the pages of even those newspapers–e.g. Sun-Times, Tribune, New York Times–that would have preferred to maintain a silence forever.
