Speeches are for audiences, in that they are HEARD.
Writing, on the other hand, is for READERS, in that
writing is read.  I thought we went over this once
before.  Anyway, I'm duly grateful for permission to,
ah, speechify.

It won't be long. I promise.

In fact, to prolong an exchange of ideas with an
individual so enamored of his positions that he
personalizes divergences of opinion and unhinges
himself over them to the point of invective is
pointless.  To go on could set him off even more, and
drive him deeper into darkness.  Indeed, as a result
of what I've read over the past few days, my mind
conjures up a vision of the computer that spurts these
brickbats our way. I see it ensconced low in a very
dark and dank cobweb-filled corner of a leaky basement
somewhere – or perhaps high in a desiccated and dusty
attic, where leather-winged demons lurk.

I’m sorry for Thomas that we disagree and that my
non-concurrance depresses him. But I’m sorry only for
the celebrated, and frankly self-inflicted
discomfiture, not for a single thing that I’ve
written.  I hope that scalded emotions are brought
under control soon.

Additionally, I encourage the understanding that even
if everyone everywhere agreed with everyone else all
of the time, it still would not be a perfect world.
It probably would be much worse. Truly, I bear
personal malice toward no one in this august list. Let
that be my last word on the matter.  I leave the
ultimate response to … whomever.
