I don’t read what you write.

Lord, does that sound bad. But it’s true. I do not read what others write about me, particularly on the comment boards at The Commercial Appeal.

I don’t read any of the comment boards on any story at all at The Commercial Appeal. I am blissfully ignorant as to what is being said, and that’s why there’s no comments here either.

I had great hopes for comments, but I have yet to see the kind of civil discourse that I know folks are capable of, so I don’t waste time there. 

If you can find my work e-mail address, I do read all e-mails sent to me, at least until the first racial slur.
