A great (if sobering) comeback
Read this post by Barney Madsen in Odd Bits, together with the article linked to it. This is about a letter to the editor, recently published in the Arizona Republic, and one reader's response to it. To the credit of the author of the original letter, he later apologized for what he had said, and did so in the Letters section of the same newspaper. But I told Barney that if I had ever written such a letter and received the response it generated, I would have felt about belly-high to an earthworm, and for good reason.
