More hatemail highlights

I don’t get many comments on my blog entries, but I sure do get a lot of email, often of the angry, misinformed persuasion. Many of these epistles have common themes, so I thought I’d share a few of my responses in the hope of encouraging a bit more originality. All names have been changed to protect the guilty.

To John, who demanded I reveal my Tribal connections, I replied that I was a Levite.

To Margaret I wrote that yes, I do indeed have the right to write the things I do, but that I appreciate her offer to visit me in prison.

To Adolph I apologized if he perceived an anti-German bias when I jokingly referred to the author of an anti-semitic email as “Klaus,” but hoped he would excuse me if I’m still a little sore over the fact that they did kill six million of my people.

To Steve I wrote to agree with him that I would not want the government telling me what I can or cannot do in the privacy of my own bedroom, although I could probably use an occasional reminder to flip my mattress.

And finally, to Kevin I thanked him for writing, but regretted that I was not limber enough to honor his request.

Please keep your comments coming.

    Dave, I was reading the Seattle Times this morning and they are stating that the horsesass plans on turning in signatures for 864 on Friday morning. What do you know about this. I certainly hope this is not true.

    I wanted to get some more facts before I blogged on this (yes… I am concerned with presenting accurate facts,) but I did receive Eyman\’s email. He doesn\’t actually say he has the signatures, so it is not clear how much of a threat this is. If he does turn in enough signatures then I\’ll be eating some crow.

    Yeah, well as the research director of P.D. I haven\’t got hate e-mail yet but that would sure boost my ego. Means I\’m doing my job.

    As far as I-864, that bloody thing makes the ballot – at least we can talk about voter-approved levy lifts (think Yacoult) as some whiz-bang lawyer (NOT Talmadge) discussed on TVW last weekend at the annual city gov\’t convention. I know this much, though: It\’s the real nightmare for people who\’ve given of themselves in local gov\’t like our firefighters, our police, our local health, our public works, etcetera.
