To the editors:

Cecil Adams in his Straight Dope today [August 2] is caught with his pants down. Nudists are the exception that proves the rule that humans are unique in donning clothes.

Cecil betrays his scientific bias by disallowing all exceptions. People don't obey laws, like things do that of gravity. What other animal commits suicide, Cecil? Forget the lemming canard.
