Writers write

Dennis Palumbo is so gracious in licensing Charlie Kaufman's self-indulgent solution to writer's block while attempting to adapt "The Orchid Thief" into "Adaptation" ("A Few Issues to Work Through," Jan. 12). We should all be glad that Kaufman didn't receive the assignment for "The Hours," or for that matter, "Mrs. Dalloway." Jim Metzler
