The Mail Bag Was Smoking This Morning
Here’s rebellion against punctuation as I sit down to the CRT screen with my morning coffee. And rebellion against criticizing bad punctuation gets a whack as well. And my approval of Casting-room-couch readers gets a sneer. And to top it off, two comma errors adorn the vitriol. My friend Jesus made Mean-mouth Anonymous do that.
This fellow must be Ziggy’s best bud. Good. Ziggy needs a soul mate who can’t wrestle commas to the ground.
Don’t think I shall give up my comma weapon fellows. It’s more effective than Buffalo Bill’s carbine, and you’re in the cross-hairs. lee

Subject: [Lee Drury De Cesare's Casting-Room Couch] New comment on The Moon Is in Its Bring-Out-the-Dopey-Twits Phase....
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "The Moon Is in Its Bring-Out-the-Dopey-Twits Phase...":
[No one posting to this blog is trying to get anything from Lee, so how is that brown nosing.]
Well, Anon, I didn’t try to get anything from the administration. I didn’t agree with the opinions of the administration either. How, then, would I be a brown noser? Or was the poster who labelled me as such lacking in vocabulary as well?
I would, however, suggest that many of you want – and get - Lee’s approval. All the poorly punctuated claptrap (such as your question without a question mark, cretin) is posted without correction when you agree with Lee, yet poor old Ziggy is lumbered in with all the NYT journos, Elia, etc., who can’t use a comma and whom Lee deems illiterate.
[You don’t have “personal choices” in where to put punctuation, Sugarbritches. You either put the commas in the right place, or you are illiterate.]
Wow, woman, you’re as bad as Bush. “Do things American or we’ll bomb the crap out of y’all!” Colour, modelling, metre – all wrong Comma and I’m illiterate, I suppose.
Oh, and what you meant to write was one of these:
You either put the commas in the right place or are illiterate.
Either you put the commas in the right place COMMA or you are illiterate.
(Ziggy, a lot of illiterate people F-word up this "either" thing.)
