Re: Nanci Gentile letter [February 2]

This letter is for Nanci Gentile. Since she likes Bob Greene, I'll keep the words small. Nanci, one of the reasons we have critics is to weed out bad writers. Bob Greene is a very bad writer, one of the worst. He makes a lot of money writing the same things, often very stupid things, over and over. He appeals to people who barely read and who have no sense of critical judgment (krit-i-kul juj-mint). If people like Bob wrote less, the issue of abused kids might be taken more seriously (seer-ee-us-lee). Read more, Nanci, read more!
