Those of us with allergies and respiratory disabilities appreciated Harry Shearer's cranky complaints on the overuse of perfumes and scents ("Making a Stink," Oct. 13).
Here's a request to those who wear scents: Think about where you will be during the course of your day. Will a stranger be forced to be close to you in an airplane, theater, meeting? Then please don't use the scent even though you may feel undressed without it. One of every 10 people in the United States is desperate for your cooperation.
