From Today's New York Times

To the Editor:

I'm very disappointed that The Times would run an article glamorizing bullfighting ("Matador for a Day," Escapes, March 10). Just because an activity is a tradition should not relieve us of basic decency.

Bullfighting is an extraordinarily cruel act toward another species. Remember, it is not a sport if the other team does not know it's playing. And especially so if the other team routinely ends up dead.
