Letter: Don’t be so sly about Sly
Re: ‘“Escape Plan” after-party held at Buca di Beppo’ (Metro, Oct. 17)
“I can suspend my disbelief just enough to pretend that Stallone has an advanced degree in engineering” — well, Ms. Robinson, as I read this personal attack on good old Sly I have a few questions. The first screenplay you wrote, did it win an Oscar for best picture? Has the character you invented been revered for almost 40 years?
Has that same character been put into the actual Boxing Hall of Fame? Did someone make a statue of you?
Or do you just write pretentious insults in a daily newspaper?
