To the Editor:
Thank you, Andy, for this really moving tribute to Pete (“Pete Fisher, Pioneering Author of ‘The Gay Mystique,’ Dead at 68,” by Andy Humm, Aug. 15-28). It was hard to read it without tearing up, not just for Pete — and I am so saddened by the depression that haunted him in the later part of his life — but for a period that seems now too long ago. I hope we get some of that spirit back, some of that indomitable spirit.
