ANOTHER SATISFIED CUSTOMER: A show of hands, please. How many writers out there just hate dealing with stupid liberal readers? Every so often, one such will write to call me a hack or an ignoramus or a monster, based on something he's misread in a piece. I find that all attempts at explanation fail, because he doesn't really want to understand. Here's how I ended the most recent exchange:

You wrote to me because you wanted to vent. Now you've done that and you've spectacularly misread my review and my views about a lot of things. I'm not going to
correct you on these things because you reach for absurdist conclusions based upon an inflexible ideology.

I write to try to understand. You write to try to show everybody how smart you are. I'm not convinced. Write to somebody else.
