  1. We’re not anyone.
    That’s the problem.
    That’s why we have time to write these hackneyed letters.

  2. “You’ll laugh because you won’t get the obscure allusions….”

    Personally, I’d be happy to get reviews like that. That means somebody actually read it.

    Nice job.

  3. Its not nice to write about me like that.
    But it means that at least one person has read my stuff.
