Hopper Worthy of Cover

RECEIVED Mon., June 14, 2010

Dear Editor,
    First off, kudos to Louis Black for recently doing a fine tribute to Dennis Hopper [“In Memory of Dennis Hopper,” Screens, June 4]. However, Louis, was Dennis not worthy of a cover? Dennis loved Austin, from filming and hanging out here over the years to even doing South by Southwest. His good friend Bud Shrake brought him here as often as he could. One of his set designers lives two houses down from me and tells me Hopper-in-Austin stories from time to time. Thanks at least for acknowledging him, Louis. He just deserved more, which is symbolic of Hopper's life and work.
