Tall airline passengers' suit

Regarding the Tall Club of Silicon Valley (Mar. 29) and its failed lawsuit demanding extra space for airline passengers of more than 6 foot, 2 inches (men) or 5 foot, 10 inches (women): I wonder why the club thinks that tall men need to be four inches taller than tall women before they deserve special treatment in seating. Maybe they are assuming four-inch high heels. -- John Steele Gordon, North Salem, N.Y.
