Re: Liz Armstrong's Yacht review [Section Three, August 20]

Liz Armstrong is right on the money. Previous quarter-pumping action does not pass for paying dues. Modest mouse manipulation makes most meager minds more mired. The 80s ate their children; 88 lives per hour. We children of the 80s are stuck going backward, thinking we'll eventually go forward. There is no warp zone, and no cultural reference will save us.
