Dear Michael [Lenehan],

I enjoyed your piece in the latest Reader ["A Year Without Journalism," December 30], and your modest proposal for a year's sabbatical for journalists. As I'm sure Swift would've agreed, perhaps those daughters (and sons) of reporters and writers who are unsuitable for lives of prostitution can be eaten.
