Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
First of all, my deepest condolences to the Boyd family, which lost two brothers to a virus out of mainland China.  
I was prompted to write by the racist tone of a letter in the previous issue.  My comments are based on a lifelong experience with China, its people,...
