Behind the Times



To the editors:

As one of many socially adjusted normal readers who pick up your paper to see what is happening on the entertainment scene, I must point out to the editors and publishers that the gay movement is a fad which peaked some time ago, and your continued obvious support to that cause will only cost you readers and advertisers in the end, even though it was popular for the last several years.

Their deceptive propaganda is now known to be false (such as the AIDS does not discriminate campaign [Hot Type, August 17]), and they are now alienating anyone who has had a relative with cancer by claiming that AIDS deserves more up front attention. Think about it.
