Will you accept one more letter regarding the movie Philadelphia and Larry Kramer's review of it [January 14]? I'm gay, and I saw the movie and really enjoyed it. It touched me. I told many friends both gay and straight about it, and they enjoyed it, too. Larry Kramer doesn't speak for me, or many gay people I know. Larry Kramer is full of shit.
