Eye of the Beholder

August 13, 1995

"Rubber (and Canvas) Soul" (by Ed Leibowitz, July 9) was supposed to be an enlightening slice of Gen-X life. At 26, I, too, prowl around swap meets looking for fine examples of my favorite collectibles. I dye my hair strange colors, wear strange clothes and own my own business, restoring vintage Vespa motor scooters.

Am I not interesting enough to merit four pages in your magazine? Or am I disqualified because I don't like corduroy Levi's, work a dead-end job and live with my mom?

If you must portray the "twenty-something" crowd, try to find someone or something interesting. Trying to make a geek look chic makes the rest of us look bad.
