Re ?Tape Found Over Portraits of Black Harvard Professors? (news article, Nov. 20):
Instead of dignifying with inflated philosophical bloviation the grim nastiness of the anonymous vandal(s) who pasted strips of black tape on the portraits of African-American professors, Harvard Law students responded with wit and human warmth: They put along the frames of those same portraits hundreds of colored Post-it notes bearing messages of affection and gratitude.
These young men and women teach us all a valuable lesson.
