Klentzman responds to letter from Joe Harrison (Refining your paper)
Editor’s note: Mr. Harrison’s letter was received through our contact us page. His letter follows: “I read an article on your website written by LeaAnn Klentzman. It was about a shooting involving a police officer. What a piece of childish garbage! Who speaks/writes like that? I have a 7 year old niece with a better understanding of the English language. Unprofessional and unintelligent”.
Dear Mr. Harrison,
Please let me begin by thanking you for reading our paper and being so concerned with its content that you took the time to write our publisher.
Based on your comments it appears that you have stumbled across my “Dumb Criminal” column. For your edification, each week in that column I take a particular crime or offense and review it with satire; which is defined by Merriam-Webster as, “A way of using humor to show that someone or something is foolish, weak, bad, etc. : humor that shows the weaknesses or bad qualities of a person, government …”
What happened to Ann Carrizales is horrifying, but at the same time it was also painfully stupid for a gang of illegals to so blatantly thumb their noses at the frontline of American authority. By the Grace of God they miscalculated, and as I write this, Ann is at home recovering and they are in custody.
If you had perused our paper further, you would have found the full story describing the attack on Officer Ann Carrizales with the headline Officer down but not out. I have the upmost respect for Officer Carrizales and her fellow public servants; they bravely stand between you, me and the many boogie men that mean us harm. That being said, I sincerely hope your 7 year old niece never disappoints you with a childish piece of garbage using that nasty English language genre of satire!
Yes sir, I must admit I am irreverent, however, I am not satirically challenged.
Again, thank you for helping us find the rough edges of our publication, we can always use refinement.
