To the editors:

In a July 3 response to Jeffrey Felshman’s earlier article, “Good Works” (June 19), Kevin Kitchen commented (among other loony things): “If there were ever a group of people–and I use the term loosely–who deserve whatever they get in the way of disease, it is dope addicts. They should die and leave the rest of us alone. In fact, it is too bad that we cannot do like the Chinese and put them out of their misery with a bullet to the head.”

Kitchen’s comments speak for themselves.

What, has the Reader suddenly become a forum for jingoist human-haters who take a sort of twisted pleasure in publicly exposing themselves for the asses they are?

The less space Kevin Kitchen is given to spew his venom, the better.
