Thank you for taking seriously the problem of anonymous citizens posting on newspaper Web sites (Drop Cap, February/March). I wish your article had addressed the ethics of this issue in addition to how the registration process impacts interactivity.

The standard for print journalism has always required letter writers to identify themselves in order to have their comments published (for example, I doubt you would print this letter if it came to you anonymously). On what grounds do the rules change online? Why are so many news outlets publishing defamatory, harassing or inciteful comments from anonymous writers online when they would never do so in print?

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
