Oh, dear

Dear Editor:

I am considering offering my services as “letter to the editor” editor. Many letters are so wordy and long and boring and can usually be summed up in a sentence. Example:


Palestine sucks.


Israel sucks.

Elizabeth Milias just wrote a letter to the editor that could be summed up as well:


I hate Jack Johnson and he is evil.

I hope he does not reply, but if he does bother, I hope I can sum him up thusly:


No, I am not.

Let me know if you would like my services throughout the election.

Hilary Burgess
