In Response to: Becoming Joy

I should like to think that Jay Ladin *00 (feature, April 6) is happier, or less unhappy, after becoming Joy Ladin. Four other people, however, are probably unhappy as a result: a wife who has seen her husband vanish before her eyes, and three children who have lost a father. That is a high price.
