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.

DO NOT DRINK WATER DURING THIS PERFORMANCE

What’s with that bottle of water? Apparently it started at the gyms. People who were a little bit lazy to walk to the water fountain preferred to buy water at the machine dispensers. Then, because the water is more expensive at the machines than at supermarkets, they decided to buy outside and carry them to the workout room . Now a lot of people are carrying a bottle of water ( mostly women) to every place they go no matter if it’s the dead of winter. Last year at a gala for the New York City Ballet, I saw a beautiful gowned woman carrying a bottle of water.She was ten feet from a bar where water was available.
The next thing we will hear, at a theatrical performance, is a reminder before the show starts saying: " Please, turn all your cell phones and beepers and do not drink water during this performance" .
