Very much appreciated your thoughtful response Chuck. I wish I felt the
pandemic alone was the reason for an "environment that fosters impatience
and anxiety, and where people react swiftly to what
they see and experience." It's very much the case now, though (IMHO) I
think social media led us down this troublesome path many years ago and we
have willingly followed it. Now it festers regulation free. I can see how
Kurt's letter may have been the only one received by the editor, but that
doesn't excuse its full acceptance for publication. I've had the newsletter
for more than a week, but Cory certainly sparked my response to the
listserv. Glad he did.
