A letter to the editor — 7 Comments

  1. "Could the good Professor please tell me why .."


    For the sake of the CheeEEEEelddrEEen , of course! Have you not being paying attention?

    • I don't give a flying fuck about the chiiildren.  What I want is for him to justify why I should have a licence.

  2. Most of the time these fucking idiots are just making shit up for the sheer hell of it. This is just another batshit crazy idea that will hopefully get treated with the contempt that it deserves.

    • Welcome Tony!  What worries me about these ideas is that they have a nasty habit of becoming something more substantial.  After all, who ten years ago could have guessed the power these fuckers have now gained?  Slippery slope and all that.

  3. It is a short, sharp and polite [you call him 'the good prof'] letter. By refusing to print it The Editor has made you a non-person. Now write a short sharp polite letter to The Editor and ask him if there are any pipe smokers in his family tree. Would he have treated them as non-persons too?

    • Heh!  In fairness they must get dozens if not hundreds of submissions per day.  Having said that they rarely if ever print something that may be perceived to be "pro smoking".

      I see someone forwarded my little piece to the Irish Times Twitter account though!  [thanks, @Noel_Random!]

      • Rejoice, you're gathering support somewhere in the belly of the beast. I've tried to find an appropriate quotation from Confucius, but only came upon a fake saying, which I find appropriately inappropriate. Here it is:

        Confucius say:- If you girlfriend starts smoking, slow down and use auspicious lubricant.
