Mark Maremont did an excellent job capturing the essence of marketing and sales programs in "Numbers game at Bausch & Lomb" (The Corporation, Dec. 19). But many of his conclusions and innuendos are way off base. As a Bausch & Lomb contact-lens and Ray-Ban distributor, I tell you the worst they're guilty of is a marketing program that didn't materialize. You've made one small episode in a fine company's history seem like the whole place is rotten.
