LOVERS AND HATERS
My thanks to Jonathan Yardley for his review of Bob Marshall's book Diary of a Yankee-Hater (BOOKTALK, May 18). Having had the good fortune to live in several major league cities—Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Houston and New York—I can appreciate what Marshall is talking about when he says, "There are millions of fans who would rather have their home team beat the Yankees than anyone else in the league."
On behalf of all Yankee fans, I'd like to thank Marshall, Yardley and those millions of other Yankee-haters. They make every pinstripe victory that much sweeter.

Jonathan Yardley says living in New York is as close to Nirvana as a true Yankee-hater can get. Well, there are Nirvanas and Nirvanas. Imagine living on the North Side of Chicago and being a true-blue Cub loyalist in a season in which they stand to lose well over 100 games. The life of a 1981 Cub fan might well meet the definition of Nirvana: a state of oblivion to care, pain and external reality, which is sought through the extinction of desire and individual consciousness.
