If the Suit Fits...

Dear Ted Allen:

If the goal of your "Reader to Reader" anecdote (May 24), beyond earning you a few dollars, should have been to convey that someone "unshaven and slightly crunchy" can be just as big of a jerk as someone wearing a suit, you successfully made your point. Count yourself as a shoo-in for the latter category: your offer to "help"--complete with expletive verb and wardrobe reference in your first sentence--couldn't have possibly left you surprised that "Crunchy" wound up reducing you to what you were wearing. Nice job in terms of symmetry (and aptly mirroring the R2R logo of the column): you two deserved each other.
