What a shame that Dinosaur Jr couldn't get away with stealing another band's name, the Dinosaurs [The Treatment, Section 3, November 25]. Well, if they can't have their name, at least their supporters, Ms. Kendrick, for instance, can call them names: "washouts" (flops, duds, failures). If that's the correct term for former members of Country Joe and the Fish, Moby Grape, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Starship, the Grateful Dead, and organ genius Merl Saunders (Dinosaur members and ex-members all), then perhaps the term is also fitting for Jr.
