Really enjoyed David Futrelle's "Marx on the Skids" (Reader, September 15), and think you've hit on something. Futrelle--a self-described "failed socialist"--proved himself up to every cheap psychologism available in traducing the legacy of that wicked Karl Marx. How about a whole Reader series of pieces, by failures, castigating their intellectual betters? You could call it Failures Detailing Their Failures--or something equally catchy. For you Capitalists out there it must be good to know that Futrelle is on your side now. You deserve him.
