Insensitivity?

July 02, 1988

Regarding the sale of Judy Garland's slippers from the movie "The Wizard of Oz" ("Movie Memorabilia Fetch Record Prices," by Rhys Thomas, June 22), while I found the article interesting, I was disturbed that you found it necessary to discuss the fact that a previous owner had apparently died "of AIDS."

I do not see how this has any relevance to the article. Including this information was sensationalistic, insensitive and an invasion of privacy.
