Blaming the Millionaire

To the Editor:

Re “Hey A-Rod! Smile!” [June 11]: If the paparazzi must pick on a celebrity, let them pick on those whose injudicious acts are fact, not fiction.

To ridicule Alex Rodriguez for sunbathing in Central Park and for giving verbose answers to reporters’ questions is nitpicking. He is a decent man who has been condemned without any proof of cheating on his wife.

He is envied and despised because of his talent, enormous wealth, good looks and everything that comes with success. It’s not his fault that there are people who are willing to reward him with millions of dollars.
