I cannot question Eugene W. Hickok's arguments in favor of a charter school in Richmond (“The Lost Charter,” Back Page, Sept. 10), but in the Patrick Henry building? When I taught English as a second language there nearly 20 years ago, I felt it was unsafe and undesirable for educational purposes. It was with a feeling of relief that I heard it had been closed. Now I'm stunned that it might be put back into use. Talk about putting new wine into old bottles! Juanita B. White, Richmond
