GOOD WORK

Keep up the good work.

PRAISE FOR WRITERS

Editor: Your delightful articles concerning the three lovely people who wrote books and the piece about Richard Sober [April 17] gave me much pleasure.

I have written thousands of poems and articles and even attempted to write a book, but I do not have the patience nor the skill to take five years to complete my book. However, it is great to know that there are talented people like them, and I know that "lightning shall strike twice."

OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

Editor: In response to LornaDell Tyce, Mary G. Malstrom and Carol C. Ault, whose letters appeared in your Sunday, May 8, 1994 Sun Magazine about "Standing Firm on Coming Out [March 27]," I find their comments very offensive and bigoted.

What are these three women afraid of? Are they the only ones who think they have "family values"? Gay people have families and values as well as they do. And just because they find gays without standards and morals just doesn't wash.

The only thing the three commentators left out in their letters was the word "hate," but then again, they really didn't have to include it. Readers got the feeling from their letters.

I applaud the Sun Magazine for its printing of "Standing Firm on Coming Out," and to the three commentators, I say, "get over it," or just turn the page. You have that choice and that right.

WONDERFUL 'WAY BACK'

Editor: I am writing in reference to . . . your feature "Way Back When." This section is enjoyed by my family and so many friends.

Recently, my grandchildren sent my picture in [for] "Up With Batons" that appeared on April 10. I was amazed to receive so many phone calls and notes from "kids" I went to school with over 50 years ago! It was great to renew old acquaintances.

My compliments to Mr. Fred Rasmussen for a job well done, for bringing back so many memories of "Way Back When" to so

many people. Keep up the good work.
