PUBLISHED IN THE 4-29-2005 COMSTOCK CHRONICLE, THE SAME EDITION FROM WHICH THE COLUMN ENTITLED "THE FINGER OF GOD" WAS CENSORED.
In the millions
of words that he spoke, wrote and published, I have never forgotten one
particular sentence: "It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear
stupid than to open it and remove all doubt."
Hope does spring eternal, even for this man. People of unchallenged wit are not expected to produce in words, thoughts or deeds any semblance of lasting import. This certainly is the case in the column entitled "Shoes of the Fisherman."
I give credit
to this newspaper for publishing rightly so all points of view, from the
learned and the ignorant, this is a great country.
ANDREW BARBANO'S FIRST IMPRESSION: I invite the reader to please read the columns in question, keeping in mind that Mr. Anthony disputes none of the facts nor any of the philosophy therein. He merely calls names. The only specific complaint I can interpolate from his letter concerns the number of words, which actually came in at 1,058 not including title or biographical note. I hope he writes again. I may have more on this later. Perhaps not. Be well. Raise hell.
