I’d like to thank Jeff Horwitz and the Washington City Paper for the well-written memorial piece on my friend Mark Chorvinsky (“The Surreal Life,” 9/16). Horwitz was thorough, thoughtful, and respectful in his approach to the story, and seemed genuinely interested in understanding both Mark and the subject matter that Mark devoted a large part of his life to exploring. Congrats on a job well done.
