Diatribe too long

By From page A5 | October 08, 2012

EDITOR: Reference Mr. Post’s diatribe entitled “We are not better off.” I congratulate him for jamming virtually every Tea/Republican talking point into one letter.

I wonder how Mr. Post will cope when “Barry” is reelected? I’m guessing not very well so we can look forward to him gifting us with more diatribes in the next four years.

In my youth I enjoyed writing diatribes. But an old wise editor told me that when you write a diatribe you lose the debate in the first paragraph.

Mr. Post might consider that wise advice.
