Reply To: Greetings from Beijing!


I did not mistake you, I made that comment for me as much as you. It becomes ever so tiresome to speak to those who will not hear. People who decry the government only to self-righteously defend it when pressed. People who want to help people no matter who gets hurt in the process. Then instead of explaining things in a useful manner I get boisterous, agitated and ultimately otiose. For me it can become difficult to maintain the fight even though it’s worth fighting. Your writing is clear and easy to understand, in a way I fear I will never be. However I found your description of Casey’s lilting Irish accent as mellifluous, ironic. That word sounds less like a compliment than a diagnosis at the free clinic.(for clarity that was for humor not snobbery)
