Christmas in July. I wish some of your correspondents, before they respond to them, would not re-write my letters so they can find something to complain about. Being misrepresented and misquoted takes the joy out of the season.
I refer to July 7 letters by Messieurs Schweigerdt, Miller and Musto, who claim to have found in my June 30 letter, opinions and statements that were not there when I wrote it. I can conclude only that they put them in their for their own purposes. I don't know why they would do that, but I have a sneaking suspicion. (Are clichés permitted?) I just wish they wouldn't do it. I don't deserve it. Because, hey! I'm a nice guy, really. (Another cliché, but I assume they can understand clichés, if nothing else.)
I know they don't know me, so they should just ask anybody who does.
I'm so intimidated I hesitate to write any more — which, I guess, is what they wanted all along.
