Grumpy Old Men
That was the title of an op-ed in my local daily paper, The Albuquerque Journal. Back in November, 2012 a guy quoted a bunch of Fox News positions, claimed they were his and got all self-righteous about it. Part of his babble was that he was an older white guy. I decided not to reproduce his op-ed here because I don't want that kind of slop on my oh-so-neat blog. But you can get the drift by my responses.
WELL, the honor of OWGs was on the line, so naturally I whipped out a rebuttal and sent it to the Journal. A week went by and I was told my letter would be published. Lo and behold, seven letters from Angry Olds were published, a whole page Op-Ed titled, "Mad as Heck, But at Whom?" I and six others, not all white or guys BTW, piled on this Fox-ite. I have to say I was proud of my demographic. Here's my letter: (click it for readable size)
I hope you don't need a magnifying glass to read it.
So here's a tip of the hat to the other 6 old folks - guys and gals - who wrote similar (some much better) letters.
William Moestretti, Albuquerque; Juana Colon, Santa Fe; Steve Bliss, Albuquerque; Juan J. Holmes, Albquerque; Greg Leichner, Placitas; Ron Herman, Albuquerque.
