Sir: In reference to the letter from Hezekiah Pure of the Cohort of Decency complaining about “inappropriately dressed women” at the Convention Center during the Mattress Sales Professionals’ Convention last weekend, I am sorry to say that Mr. Pure has entirely misunderstood the situation. Those women were all hired prostitutes, and were dressed according to the most rigorously proper standards for their profession. In the future it would pay Mr. Pure to investigate a little further rather than rely on his mistaken assumptions. —Sincerely, Hank Banks, General Sec’y, Middle Atlantic Association of Mattress Sales Professionals.
