In his July 28 Free for All letter, Leonard Wartofsky repeated a statement attributed to Leonard Bernstein that he has never seen a statue of a critic [“Everyone’s a critic of a critic”]. If Wartofsky should ever venture to Champaign, Ill., I would be happy to show him the statue of late film critic Roger Ebert.
