I think you are being insulting to people who live in trailer parks!

Dear Anonymous: Yes I did, and I am sticking to it. I grew up poor and have no illusions about the romance of poverty. I also say things such as "Palm Beach overdressed snobs." I hit both ends of the economic spectrum.

I decline to become a verbal eunuch for anybody. If I hit on a metaphor that delights me, I use it. If I invoke an old metaphor like "trailer-part trash," it's because I judge it expresses my meaning.

You can't tie a writer's hands and expect anything but rhetorical mush. I decline to have my hands tied when I pull up to the CRT screen. lee
