Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

AN ELEGANT SUICIDE

Does anybody remember Lupe Velez? She was called the " Mexican Spitfire" , a caricature that Hollywood still uses to boost sales tickets to Latin markets.
To tell the truth, I never saw a movie that Lupe Velez made . I studied movies and that’s why I know about all those obscure ladies. A funny-sad story is how Lupe Velez died. When a love affair went wrong, she decided to commit suicide. But she was going to exit like a star...beautifully dressed, coiffed and made- up. She had her butler serve her a " farewell" Mexican dinner...Then she took a fistfull of sleeping pills and lay down on her bed, surrounded by flowers, to die. Unfortunately, the pills and the Mexican dinner did not mix well..and she had to rush to the bathroom. Apparently she tripped and was found dead next day, drowned, with her head in the toilet.
