This one in reference to my story on brain research. I'm withholding the name of my correspondent because I feel like it:

Why is it that I have to endure hearing about a person's frickin'
Jewism every time I hear a story from a Jew,be it on TV or in
print? Is it an inferiority complex? class envy? cronyism? a
Holocaust pity party? I mean, when was the last time you heard a
Catholic or a German or any other person integrate their religion
and/or nationality with their telling of a story? I can't think of
a last time.

Now, Jeffrey,I know you've been indoctrinated to write me off, and
any other person who scrutinizes your Jewism,as being anti-Semitic
but,if you did, that would be wrong. If you did, I would have to
conclude that the problem is more of your ethnocentrism than my
anti-Semitism.

And,if you ever come to Denver,you're apt to see me on the street
corners with my large sign telling passers-by that we need to get
American money the hell out of Israel and let the Marxist Jews go
it alone before their liberalism causes another world war.I get an
ever-increasing number of thumbs-up.
