Star Repels Vampires

March 15, 1997

Howard Rosenberg should find "something bothersome about the cross that makes the vampires . . . shrink in horror" in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" ('So, Like, She Hates Vampires, Y'Know?" March 10).

He writes, "As a non-Christian, I demand to know why a Jewish star doesn't also work."

The originator of the vampire genre wasn't so specific. Bram Stoker, who was ethnically Jewish, wrote only that vampires were affected by religious artifacts, which permits Jewish stars, Tibetan prayer wheels and kachina dolls to work just as well.

The prevalence of Christian paraphernalia comes from the tunnel vision of producers and script writers.
