Society Publisher Tipped Off to 'Code'

August 25, 1994

Regarding: "Saving Blue Book From Ultimate Snub," Jeannine Stein, Aug. 18:

Apparently Ms. Allegra Yust has spent too many hours sipping tea in her mother's spacious, perfumed apartment. Is she really this naive, or was she, perhaps, abroad during the Los Angeles riots?

Shame on The Times for not clearly explaining to the readers that the infamous "Blue Book" is code for racism. Less than 1% of the listings in this register are other than Anglo-Saxon.

Any proceeds Ms. Yust accumulates should be spent on a trip to Howard University for a crash course in multiculturalism.

I am personally enclosing the cost of admission to the Museum of Tolerance. Your chauffeur can drop you off, Allegra.

Plan on spending the day.

THERESE SIMON, Claremont
