I want to thank the Reader for the excellent article "Death of a Scientologist" [August 16]. It is a real act of bravery to tell the truth about the tragedy that befell Greg Bashaw and his family. It is a painful but necessary reminder that some people and organizations are always willing to exploit someone's suffering for their own ends.

PS: It was great to see the Reader once again have an extended cover story instead of the miniarticles of the last few months.
