Hale Shecky

October 30, 1994

Regarding "It's Not Easy Being Greene," Oct. 16:

Lawrence Christon's article on Shecky Greene was outstanding--informative, funny, sad, compelling, a rare moving, well-written story. It should be printed in medical journals.

I hope that Greene will be free from his demons and that his genius will thrive and prosper.

Thanks to Dr. Ronald Gershman and his expertise. Mental illness is a dreadful disease. Lucky that Greene found him!

Thanks to The Times for publishing and giving proper space to a proper story.

And thanks to Shecky for allowing his moving experiences to help others.
