It is amazing that people such as Bill Graham, Jack Healey and Brian Murphy are stupefied that the Amnesty International concert didn't sell out in Los Angeles ("The Amnesty Tour--Conscience & Compromise," by Robert Hilburn, Sept. 18).
While Hilburn's article gave the fact that the show was on a weeknight, it ignored the fact that it was scheduled on Yom Kippur--the holiest day in the Jewish religion.
Couple that with the second-largest Jewish population in the country and you can see why there were so many tickets available.
It is hard to feel sorry for a group that purportedly stands for human rights and yet is ignorant to the religious practices of a group that has been one of the largest supporters of civil rights in the world.
