To the editors:

In 1968 I was just a kid in the 8th grade on the north side. When the riots occurred after Dr. King's murder I didn't follow the news. Twenty years later I'd forgotten all about it.

You people have done a fine job not just reporting history ["The Night Chicago Burned," August 26], but showing why things happened, some of what really went on, and how this has brought us to where we are now. Particularly effective were the interviews you conducted.

Please, more reporting of this caliber. Since no one else will report stories of this kind, I hope we can count on you.
