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.

THE SHARP TONGUE OF TRUMAN CAPOTE

The movie " Capote" touched on only one aspect of the life of Truman Capote, when he was writing " In Cold Blood". The movie did hint at his
mean, sharp tongue. Whatever his remarks were…they were funny, even if often damaging. Here it is what he had to say about Jack Kennedy:
" What I do not understand is why everybody said that the Kennedys were so sexy. I know a lot about c….( explicit)- I've seen an awful lot of them- and if you put all the Kennedys together, you wouldn't have one good one. I used to see Jack when I was staying with Loel and Gloria Guiness in Palm Beach. I had a little guest cottage with its own private beach, and he would come down so he could swim in the nude. He had absolutely nuthing"
Well, I believe Truman. I used to see him at my old gym called " Profile" on East 49th Street. I never saw him working out…perhaps he was just doing " research"...
