It's Wrong To Make Fun of People Who Don't Use Air Conditioning

RECEIVED Thu., Nov. 27, 2008

Dear Justin Andrews,
    Although it is your option to use air conditioning whenever you feel like it, to make fun of Pete Wall for not using AC is just plain wrong [Postmarks, Nov. 28]. I did not use AC this last summer, because I couldn't afford it. I rode my bicycle everywhere (I don't own a car). I kept my clothes clean, bathed daily, sweat a lot, but didn't stink. I'll just bet that on the rare occasion that you work up a sweat that, "You sir, are a sweaty, smelly fool."
