Letters: Letter gets a laugh

Back and forth comments between two letter writers

Had a great laugh today reading Keith Sketchley’s latest epistle, on this occasion in response to my criticism of Tom Fletcher, and his recent column disparaging the need for self-sufficient food regarding the ALR, why it doesn’t need protection, and essentially equating farming with strip-mining. I liked the title too.

I suppose I should be flattered Mr. Sketchley chose to aim his poison pen at me, I must have really hit a nerve criticizing the great Mr. Fletcher, whose columns, it seems, are one of the few pillars protecting our democracy from the always imminent takeover of a Marxist/Soviet Communist regime. BTW, I didn’t know the people of North Korea relied on food from “relatives in Communist China”, I was under the impression they were trying to establish all sorts of more normal engagement with South Korea.

Mr. Sketchley’s letters frequent Black Press’ opinion pages, and sometimes even the Times-Colonist, giving, I’m sure, their readers a good laugh as well.  And who can forget the loyal readers of the old Monday Magazine, who apparently supported its “anti-human ugliness”!
