:::My Response to Dr. Wallace:::

Greetings Dr. Wallace. I wasn't aware that there was a word count in responding to one of your Op-Eds. Forgive my ignorance in such matters. Perhaps you should include at the end of your Op-eds the word count that you are willing to accept. I also wasn't aware that you give English lessons. How nice of you and for free! Wow. Oh, and do watch those floating "the's" when you send out responses chastising someone else's grammar skills.

Since my last response was too long, I will keep this one shorter (not by much though). I am sure you love to hear the sound of your own fingers typing words on to a blank screen and then having your work sent around the cyber world for people to read. It must be very fulfilling. However, if you expect people to read your long-winded Op-eds, the least you can do is take the time from your busy schedule to read their comments. Afterall, why ask for comments if you have no real desire to read them? If you wish for comments to be minimal, please respect your readers and keep your op-eds at a minimal as well. Fair is fair.

Have a pleasant afternoon.
