Hi Justin,

Thanks for reading and writing, writing, writing.

Wow, did you ever have a well thought out rebutt-al to my post. I was shrinking in embarrassment from your very first hashtag.

My satire probably is a bit amateurish, Justin, it’s true, because I just started writing the form this past October. But I’m posting every day, seven days a week, and doing my best, so I feel certain that my fake satire will become real satire (based on some real premise, as you point out), sometime around June.

In the meantime, I certainly hope you’ll keep reading and responding (but not with the same number of paragraphs, because I’m practicing my satire, and I’ll never get better if I have to stop to read those long comments).

FYI, I take my marching orders from Michael Moore and Robert Reich (not the Third Reich, that’s taller than Robert), two thinkers I know you respect as much as I do:

When it comes to bullies, satire is the best disinfectant. — Robert Reich

Have a good day, Justin. And please don’t tire out your typing hands on me. You have other “Anti-Fas” (???) to skewer.

–AI
