Reader Mail — Reading Comprehension

First off, yeah, I know I haven’t posted in quite some time. Life has been busy. Wonderfully, wonderfully busy. I’ll get back to this part of life in a real way within the next week.

Now, onto a bit of reader mail that came in yesterday. It comes from Lila G. (or Icy, I guess), who needs to work on her reading comprehension skills a bit (a good bit). Here’s what Lila writes:

Hello, I was reading one of your archives (about American Idol)

and you said (and I quote) “big, fat, black Ruben”, I was wondering if you had anything against black people…and also do you have something against big people with extremely good voices and talent? That’s it. Thanks


Um, no, Lila, that isn’t what I meant at all. That isn’t it at all. (It’s an Eliot thing. You wouldn’t understand.) I don’t have anything against black people or big people with good voices and talent. In fact, quite the opposite, as those who are able to read and understand can see for yourselves.

Stay in school, Icy. You’ve got work to do yet.
