To the editor
Regarding Kirk McDonald's Sorry, College Grads, I Probably Won't Hire You (op-ed May 10): Mr. McDonald, I am sorry to read you won't be hiring the college graduates you believe you need because they lack the computing skills your cool, rapidly growing company requires. As an English professor at a state school, however, I won't be changing the vocational advice I give to many of my students.
