Whither Winona?

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

Mr. Bart’s timely column about Winona Ryder (“Why Celebrities Self-Destruct,” Nov. 10) reminds one that, to be free, we must assume total responsibility for ourselves. Miss Ryder may have avoided a prison sentence, but one wonders if she hasn’t, without intending to, sentenced herself to an equally bad jail.
