Depending on what I write in any particular week, I might get a lot of letters from readers, or a few. I always like them, and I do my best to answer them. If people take the time to respond to me, even if they’re voicing their disapproval of something I said, the least I can do is acknowledge them. Without readers I wouldn’t have a career. Well, actually, Christer and Ari tell me without them I wouldn’t have a career. But I digress.
Yesterday, I got a note that contained what is probably the best sentence I have ever seen in a letter I’ve received. After I left the Star, some people did a little scramble thinking they would never be able to read me again, and I mean, what’s the point of living? I always direct them to the Globe site, the Spectator site, or my own, so they can follow along. Bob has written before, and I was happy to let him know several months ago where he could find me. He wrote this:
“But since I love your column so much, I added it to my “Favourites” right below Facebook, and above “Septic Tank Q&A”…”
I’m sorry. There is nothing I can add to that.
