In Response to: The Ball Is in His Court

Re: the Dan Porter ’88 cover story (“The Ball Is in his Court,” October issue). Just what the world needs: exhaustive coverage of a brilliant Princeton alum who thrills to the idea of dangling impossible dreams before countless adolescents, who themselves will never get anywhere near sports superstardom — but who will still covet $265 sneakers.

Your worshipful puff piece on the glories of 21st-century private enterprise is capped by the number of times your subject poses for the camera. Way to go, PAW!
