Getty House

November 26, 1995

Re "Getty House," Letters, Nov. 19:

Does Carol Kinnon tithe?

I feel comfortable asking such a personal question since she seem so caustic in her criticism of the personal, private donations of others; specifically, those well-meaning citizens who were concerned that no taxes be used at all in the refurbishing of the Getty House, an official residence (often entertaining foreign dignitaries) that reflects the prestige that we strive for here in Los Angeles.

Incidentally, the Aubusson carpet cost $18,000, not $81,000 as promulgated in her complaint. And it was paid for privately, as was everything else, including labor, which was also donated.
