I certainly hope that the Washington City Paper is going to help Aries Bond (“I’m More Than an Just Alcoholic,” 5/7). Mr. Bond is indeed an alcoholic and is desperately in need.

I don’t expect the City Paper to pay for his treatment, but don’t just let Bond die on the street, because in a few years, at the rate he is going, he is certainly going to be dead.
