Objection Raised

Editor: In the issue of Weekend dated April 9, Lindy Sinclair's article "The Crimean Cure" refers to the cable car lift in Yalta as being "invented to eliminate a small part of the Yalta population." Being resident in Yalta for nearly 20 years I have never heard of a single accident, though I suspect she might say I come from the lucky dozen of survivors. The car never slows down, but this has never discouraged locals or visitors. Vadim Y. Popov Moscow
