Re: “Language too rich? Try chewing it over”, Have Your Say, yesterday. 

There are those who feel compelled by a felt sense of inadequacy to assert their self-importance in the most brutish, vulgar, obnoxious, unsavoury and ill-humoured fashion, failing to notice their effect upon others or in extreme cases revelling in the act of magnifying suffering in the world. 

I have always thought that such people deserve patience and compassion, but nary a drop of this precious ink. But perhaps in the light of this noble paper’s impending departure I have erred; indeed, the worst must occasionally be displayed in order that we can truly appreciate the best in humankind.
