Dear Dr. Taylor:
I cannot but believe that you will be receiving similar irate responses to the Foucault perspectives published in the August 2000 issue of Mental Retardation. Not silencing voices in the matter of Foucault can only invite papers on the positive points of Mein Kampf. The tyranny of this fad is reflected in some very negative policies within the University Presses who turn out most academic literary criticism. I am quite aware of this because I have published with them, and I can truly say that when I compare the critical response to manuscripts submitted 15 years ago to manuscripts submitted this year, that tyranny appears to have finally been overthrown. This brief note is not under submission elsewhere. Thank you for your consideration.
