Regarding the column "When `Made in USA' Is a Vanishing Label," Sept. 22: The United States has been a 300-year-old leader in opening up a concept of life that has shown to the world a very different way of life. But this world is emulating us, each nation in its own way, and is slowly catching on. We can no longer claim first and only place in this vast development.
These developing nations need a share in this lifestyle. We need to share this phenomenon and become a part of it in a new and innovative way. If we continue to expand our thinking, we'll be accepting a complex and gratifying opportunity. L. Virginia Hector, Lakewood, Colo.
