For Diana Slickman of W. Winona [Letters, January 24].

Let me be the first to tell you to lighten up and get a life in which humor and satire can make your daily routine more than merely dreary and confrontational.

I personally thought if anyone was demeaned in that article, it was men. But hey, if you can't make fun of men's obsessions, what can you make fun of? Next thing you know people will get mad about making fun of aldermen.
