To the editors:

Flip through Harold Henderson's "Uncle J.R. Explains It All for You" (February 9), and what do you find? A story about UIC Professor John R. Regalbuto's search for an "absolute standard" for human conduct in our material universe, yes, certainly, but a story the text of which was printed in eight out of its full nine pages on top of advertisements for aerobics classes, furniture, lingerie, women's fashion, Valentines Day, you name it.

In other words: It's deconstructionists 1, Uncle J.R. zero.
