Blade Runner is not Science Fiction

In 1981, Philip K. Dick saw a television show featuring a segment about the soon to be released Ridley Scott film Blade Runner, based on his iconic novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. In response he wrote an impassioned letter to the Ladd Company, producers of the movie. Somehow that 30 year-old letter has recently surfaced. And like a good Blade Runner fanatic, I have to share it with you.
