To the Editor:
The lengths to which J. Edgar Hoover went to surround himself with slim young men are a matter of record. Agents of the Bureau relied on cigarettes and amphetamines to meet his criteria for weight and waistline. The legacy is twofold; the burden of lung cancer falls on agents and former agents of the Bureau. But FBI policy concocted in an atmosphere of amphetamine-fueled paranoia still falls on us all.
