Dear Letters,

Poor Bill Wyman, living in an outhouse and embarrassed about the toilet paper. The Stones have sold out [Hitsville, September 16]? What does Mr. Wyman think rock is about? Rock defines selling out, just as Wyman defines pathetic opportunism at ten cents a word. If the Stones are simply businessmen with psychotic pretensions, it’s still a step beyond doing a weekly column about businessmen with psychotic pretensions.

A plague on both your houses,

Paul Donahue
