I read a couple of your other pieces, you are thoughtful and intelligent.
But a few points from under the shadow of your admonishment to “do better.”
- You did write “little outrage pieces,” right here in this exchange.
- I’m not a journalist, just a writer.
- I write regularly; I try to be useful to *my* audience.
It’s easy to write people off from one piece, than to give them a chance. But time is the limiting factor, and I appreciate that you’ve spent some of it on me today.
You only respond if you care. That’s the opposite of indifference, and I’ll take that any day.
I hope you’ll take this in the right spirit. It’s offered with respect.
Very Sincerely Yours,
