Keep It Short




Dear Editor,

I read with much interest the recent Reader article about IVI-IPO ["Fighting Over Scraps," November 7]. As a past IVI-IPO board member ('96-'97 operational year) I was present at most of the meetings described by Mr. Felshman.

I tried to find the section in the article that explained the issue, and I was eager to read a discussion of the implications. Instead what I found was an article that dwells on personalities and rambles on with distractive trivia.

I suggest that interested readers review the recent article on this subject by Eric Zorn in the Chicago Tribune. Mr. Zorn's article appeared in the Tuesday, November 4, 1997, edition, and states the IVI-IPO issue in clear terms.
