GARCIA AND GUILT

Rolling Stone Press editor Holly George-Warren states that the upcoming publication of their Jerry Garcia tribute book gives her a "vast amount of guilt" and makes her feel like a "corpse-sucker" (Pop Eye, Oct. 15). She's right to feel this way.

As an environmental activist, Garcia would probably not have objected to having his remains recycled for whatever essential treasures could be harvested, but for the health of the planet, and not for Rolling Stone's economic concerns.

I suggest that Rolling Stone contribute every last penny of profit from this publication to Garcia's favorite charity, the Rainforest Foundation.
