Dear editor,

As an aspiring professional bowler I found the opening paragraph of Jeffrey Felshman's "Blind Alley" (7/15/94) dreadful. I personally know hundreds of people who could answer his questions and thereby refute his "nobody . . ." statements also.

I'm not sure if his opening remarks are intended to denigrate bowling or blind people (or both) or simply penned out of ignorance.

I guess anybody can be a journalist.
