Letter to the editor

To the Editor:

I can only judge that Laura Fries must be a “method” critic, since she really went back in time to use a mid-20th Century term about a late-19th Century character in her early 21st Century review of the Telepic “Case of Evil.”

Ms. Fries (or should I say “Miss” Fries, to keep in a sexist-time warp of her own apparent “preference”?) mentions Sherlock Holmes’ “sexual preference.”

Do we really have to hark back yet again to that old standby? Sexuality is not a preference, like deciding to see a movie or a play tonight or having Grape Nuts instead of corn flakes in the morning. Sexual preference is about as accurate a term as “military intelligence.” Some people are just so slow to learn — or perhaps they just prefer to be clueless.
