In his POINT AFTER (NOV. 18) Randy Shilts ridicules Vice-President Dan Quayle for suggesting that young people should practice abstinence. Have our morals sunk so low that we can't even ask our children to consider this as an alternative?
Sally Jenkins echoes the view of many women—and men—about Johnson's sexual escapades (POINT AFTER, NOV. 25). I salute Jenkins for her insight into this American tragedy, especially her point about how the public would respond to, say, Jackie Joyner-Kersee if she disclosed that she had slept with legions of men and had contracted HIV from one of them. Jenkins's piece should be required reading for everyone.
