It must have meant to be humorous, the article "Footloose in Kenya--A Rite of Passage" (April 24), by Beverly Beyer and Ed Rabey. The first five inches of the article are entirely taken up with describing the excruciating rite of circumcision for 16-year-old Masai youths. This is immediately followed by "How to Get There" and "How Long and How Much." Is it anticipated that there is an eager following for travel with such an objective? Wow! Now I really understand the meaning of outre.
