Letters to the editor, November 2010
This a traditional letter column. You are encouraged to write a letter of comment on anything that you find worthy of comment. It will (may) be published in this column along with my reply. As editor I reserve the right to delete material; however I will not alter the undeleted material. E-mail to me that solely references the contents of this site will be assumed to be publishable mail. All other e-mail is assumed to be private. And, of course, anything marked not for publication is not for publication. Oh yes, letters of appreciation for the scholarly resources provided by this site will be handled very discreetly. This page contains the correspondence for November 2010.

I have come across some quite personal and private pictures of what i beleive to be yours. Well at least the pictures are marked with your email addy.
I have taken the time to upload these to a file hosting website for you to take a look. If they are, e-mail me back and i will tell you the site so you can ask how/where they got them and to remove them.

A letter sent me back to your description of your acting days, where I see you refer to the eminent [sic] demise of the 20th century. The end of the millennium may not have been a sordid little affair, but I wouldn't call it eminent....
This is a little problem here. The difficulty is that on one hand typoes regularly appear in my prose and, on the other, I am fond of little bits of word play in my prose. So the question at hand is whether it was a typo or a bit of word play. The passage in question was written over a decade ago and I no longer recall my intent at the time. I tried channeling myself circa 1999 to no avail. I did make contact but the only answer I got "Remember your Kierkegaard". I found both offensive and of little use. I recall my younger self as being a rather inoffensive chap; I dare say memory fails me.Return to index of contributors

Sorry, I'm not available. Then again, I'm not Nathan. Maybe you used the wrong email address.Return to index of contributors

My present condition is very unfortunate. I have been trying to contact you about a huge donation to be made through you. Please reply for more information.
Your condition remains unfortunate. You're not getting any of my money.Return to index of contributors

re el Cid: "Give a man a relativistic rock today, and he will smash a planet tomorrow. Teach him the math, and he will be smashing planets forever."
Hazardous Conditions: "If you think there's lightning in the neighborhood, put a 1-iron in your bag; not even God can hit a 1-iron."
I believe this falls under the "medium size wisdom for medium size minds" criterion.Return to index of contributors
