If Mark Athitakis can correctly surmise that Madonna is full of shit [Critic's Choice, Section Three, July 9], why didn't you, Bob Mehr [The Meter, July 9], conclude that Thaione Davis is a double dip of the same concoction? In fact nitwit Davis's favorite word is shit, when he is not using motherfucker. Most sane, literate people would refrain from calling either asshole, Madonna or Davis, a Renaissance person, no matter how loosely one uses the word.

But it proves a point. Even dumb-shit assholes can produce babies, but culture requires more effort!
