Your ping list might be interested in his latest column:
Where the Ignorant and Angry meet
"... The column was referenced on an Internet message board.
If you're ever wondering where all the humorless people are, they are writing on the Internet. Well over a hundred responded. Dozens e-mailed me.
...Seems to me you can argue the column wasn't funny. You can argue it was badly written, or a waste of time. No problem. You can even fail to get the joke.
But why the anger? Why the hostility? Why the hatred?
Ignorant AND angry is no way to go through life, folks."
I hope these idiots didn't claim to represent Freepers.
I don't think so, None of the quotes he list match up with anything said here. Plus I think most of the people on my ping list figured out it was satire. The only harsh words directed at Baby boomers were not directed at the author but at baby boomer posters who didn't find the article funny and thought this article was somehow an attack on them.
Too bad he didn't give the name of the Internet Message Board. I will have to email him a link to this thread
