You Can Kiss My Ass! Manipulative Bullshit! Outright Lies! And More Thoughtful Comments From an American and Christian Who Only Cares About His Fellow Man. Or IS IT Only Cares About Calling His Fellow Man Names?

RECEIVED Mon., Feb. 16, 2004

Dear Editor,
   What's the problem this time, Louis? Wake up on the wrong side of the cage again, did we?
   Let's get something real clear here, Louis. As a reader and a writer I will determine what is relevant and what isn't. You, as an editor, can trash it or (are you ready for this?) edit it or better yet you can kiss my ass. You are a pompous hypocrite, full of ideas ... like juvenile name-calling. Is the truth so ugly that you can't publish it?! Or are you too busy trying to be part of the news rather than trying to cover it? Denial, being a landmark staple of liberalism seems to be a sticky subject for you of the media. But for a liberal King of Red Herrings to try to tell me what is and isn't relevant is the epitome of manipulative bullshit. We are beyond that, Louis, so I gotta wonder what your real bitch is this time. You and the Chronicle have the journalistic ethics of Joe McCarthy. In fact, outright lies don't even seem to be beneath the Chronicle. Lee Nichols once wrote, "There is no homosexual agenda," as if he hoped his manipulative psychotic denial was contagious.
    Hey, how about that despicable photo-op at the Travis County clerk's office where the homosexuals were turned down for a marriage permit?! Does Channel 7 (Fox) and the Statesman have reporters on retainer at the courthouse, or did "somebody" tip them off?
