My friend and neighbor, Philadelphia bowmaker Elizabeth Shaak and her colleague Matthew Wehling, wrote this letter to the New Yorker which was published in the July 28th issue. The letter is in response to Elizabeth Kolbert's recent piece "Save the Elephants" (July 7). Ms. Shaak has asked friends and concerned musicians to share the letter, which I reproduce here (click for a larger resolution):
