Re: "Home Invasion" [July 30]

Dear ed.,

Is Jack Clark his real name? (Jim Jones isn't mine.) I'm very glib and have been saying those things for years. But he made it poetry. The Catcher in the Rye of gentrification. You guys are very good, but he's even too good for you.

Encourage him to leave home and write full-time, and U.S. friction will be forever enriched.
