Marvin Couch, of the Bronx, writes: Last weekend, I gave a 30x20-inch print of your Lenin and McCarthy to my Beatles-crazy friend, Pete, for his 50th birthday. He always wants Beatles stuff and it's hard to find things he doesn't already have, but I doubted he'd have one of these and I was right. And I could tell, the instant he tore off the paper, he didn't want this one, either. He pretended he did, but he's a lousy pretender. And it wasn't necessary. I'd have been fine with his coming right out and telling me he didn't like it. But that's not Pete's way. He took my arm and walked me through the entire house pretending to look for the perfect spot to hang the unwanted print, had me hold it up a half-dozen different places in every room to see how it looked. Some rooms we revisited a second and third time. On our second pass through the kitchen, I saw an out. I suggested he might prefer your Lenin & McCarthy as a fridge magnet. Boy, was he relieved! He thought that would be perfect! So I've ordered him a magnet, which he's cleared space for on the side of his fridge, and I've hung the unwanted print in my game room next to the pinball machine. It looks pretty good there, though it is a touch small for the space and I'm wishing, now, I'd given him a bigger one.
