...typing for peace, democracy, and the glory of the Typosphere
When you write a letter to a columnist ... expect to be published!I enjoyed your reflections on various forms of writing.

That feeling is exactly why I haven't given him my real name yet and am very precocious in my letters. Must indeed feel really strange being quoted that way. Even when you expect it.Happy you are still writing your own "columns". They are very pleasant to read!
Here's the thing ... I love hearing from all of you. You're great writers, and I hope you keep sending me your well-considered missives. I will write about all of our correspondence with great care. Keep the letters flowing.
