To the editors:

After reading Franklin Soults’s humorless and verbose response to the McComas and Rohan letter [December 5] all that came to mind was this question: When are these hyperanalytical critics going to stop boring everybody with their endless rants? When, Mr. Soults, are you going to realize that the sheer pretentiousness of your prose completely obliterates any point, feeble as it may be, you attempt to make? Please spare us all your opinions on the intellectual ramifications of pop music and lighten up, for Pete’s sake.
