I'm an American businessman who has been living and working in Korea.

Last night we held a farewell dinner for 112 of those "dark-suited salarymen."

The dinner was to say good-bye, since we are closing our operations here and are opening one in Japan.

Sadly all of those salarymen will soon be looking for jobs.

At the farewell dinner, I showed several of our employees your article ("The dark-suited salaryman," J-Style, Saturday).

We all laughed so hard we almost cried.

All of the anti-Americanism did not rub off on these fine birds.

Thanks for the laughs. Sorry it's too late.
