The Coach That Cares

To the editors:

It will be a great day for the Reader and for the human race when editorially the paper raises three cheers for the entrepreneur who brought "Windy City Motor Coach" ["The Prison Run," June 9] into existence in January 1987.

This one day service to accommodate relatives of inmates of Downstate prisons may have been possible since 1957. For entrepreneurs it isn't money that gets them on the job but caring--a desire to ease the lot of man.

It's a rare bird that cares and also has get-up-and-go. Were this not so, some sojourner in this devil's workshop of a world would have set up a windy city coach company 30 years ago.
