King Brat

May 18, 1986

Pat H. Broeske's attack on Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy ("Brat Whapping," Outtakes, May 11) once and for all brings definition and clarity to the title "Brat Pack."

The young actors to whom this term refers earn higher salaries and notoriety than most staffers on the news-circuit, and therefore are considered fair game for "writers" such as Broeske to scathe, thereby deriving needed therapy for the jealous empty lives they lead.

I know Nelson and Sheedy to be very caring and serious about their work; whatever "Blue City" was, or was not, it is unforgivable that a "journalist" chooses to be so unrelentingly destructive.

As a media-appointed member of this "Brat Pack," I'd stand and be counted with Sheedy and Nelson any day.
