To the editors:

I find it particularly interesting that Harold Henderson found it necessary to refer to the quarters of Vegetarian Times [December 11] as being above a "greasy spoon and a pet store." He also placed the location as being in downtown Oak Park. First of all, the location is not downtown Oak Park. Secondly, the little coffee shop he's making reference to is hardly a "greasy spoon."

Oak Park is a neat place to live. I understand the need for some writers to spice up their stories by adding cutesy descriptive terms; however, I think Mr. Henderson might be encouraged to stick to the facts next time he contributes to your paper. He probably got off the Lake Street el and said, "Well, here I am in downtown Oak Park." Wrong Harold.
