Sent to but not published in the New Yorker Magazine

I am afraid that your May 1st (New Yorker, page 36) cartoon, "I couldn't afford health insurance, so I became a Christian Scientist," has done us all a great disservice.

I fully expect this theocratic and pharisaical administration to unroll this suggestion as a solution to the problem of the under-insured.
