Letter to the Editor

Regarding Joanne Klimovich Harrop's Living story “Furs last longer with proper care” (March 8 and When will the Trib stop trying to glorify the wearing of fur?

Only the most uncompassionate people could ever think of wearing an unnecessary piece of clothing that represents misery and unspeakable cruelty (trapping/mink farms) for the sake of their self-centered vanity.

Caring people cringe when they see someone wearing fur and are not impressed — just repulsed.
