To the editors:

Thank you for your cover story on John R. Regalbuto [February 9]. It was important for you to expose the absurd decision of the University of Illinois to allow this bizarre “philosopher” to teach ethics.

Nicknaming him “J.R.” is appropriate. His moral retardation is best exemplified by his assertion that bullfighting is justifiable because of the crowd’s “need” for entertainment. God save us from J.R.’s philosophy!
