While welcoming the escalating interest and discussion concerning the LD50 and Draize campaigns as spotlighted in "Making Compassion the Fashion" (Cover, December 1985), I believe that AGENDA'S call for further ultimatums to the cosmetics industry may well be counterproductive. It seems to me that when an industry or corporation is responsive, we want them to continue to be responsive and use their responsiveness as an example for others. Why spend your energies hitting people who are working with you on common goals?
