Letter: Good Satire

Letter to the Editor

This letter is addressed to TMT Blogger Burt Ross.

Here’s what baffles me, Burt. You write a weekly satire column in a small city newspaper. Joe Queenan writes a weekly satire column in The Wall Street Journal. I read both columns every week. Yours is always ten times better than his. Always. His is so bad that I often can’t get through it; I try because we both grew up in Philly and are both Irish, so I’m obligated. Keep up the good work. Your writing is first class. Send me your curriculum vitae. I’m 82 [years old].

Edward Murphy
