IN RESPONSE TO YOUR article about Jimm Altman (“Artifacts,” 2/17): Why was there any need to mention “the other one” waiting in D.C.? I did not know Jimm, but I do know the “other one” quite well. He has taught me the importance of remaining faithful, of trust, and most of all, what can happen if you ignore these factors of a relationship. I also found it very disturbing that anyone would ruin the name of the living in order to honor that of the dead.
