Column strikes the wrong chord

Posted: February 4, 2013 - 11:19am

I don’t often read Les Palmer’s column in your Friday edition, but today (Feb. 1) I made the mistake of doing so; the title was “Wildlife Vs. Man.”

I can’t decide whether he’s trying to be funny, or if he’s serious. If the former, he needs to go back to comedy school; I think I have a reasonably well developed sense of humor, but I don’t find anything in it even mildly amusing.

If the latter, he needs to be provided a one-way ticket to somewhere outside, the farther the better. I’ll be happy to contribute to the ticket fund.

Faulty Thinking

Jerry has made the common error of "either-or" thinking. For myself, I found the story by Les Palmer both funny and serious.

Letter on Les Palmer column

Perhaps drmctchr can fill me in on what the third possibility here is. I guess I just don't have enough imagination. But then I choose to live here all year so that's entirely possible.

In answer to drmctchr's second comment

OK, there are four possibilities. But in this particular case I would put it in the fourth: not funny and not serious.

In answer to potomac's comments

I am very very definitely NOT a commercial guide. Potomac tells me to "go back from whence I come". I've lived in Kenai since 1978, in Alaska since 1957. I wasn't born here, but I got here as quick as I could. He(?) also asks why I read Les' column this time; I guess the headline grabbed my eyeballs. I would amend my previous statement that I never read his column to say that I seldom read it.

Get a life!

Just try and find a little joy without stepping on someone elses rights.
