Submitted to New York Times but not published

To the editor

Three cheers for Jeanne Heifetz.

Three cheers for Dr. Alfred Crosby.

And three cheers for Michael Winerip--for seeing that what they have to say is important to New York students--and to students in other states idiotic enough to believe in high-stakes tests (Jan. 8: "How New York Exams Rewrite Literature (A Sequel)").
