On another subject, a good friend, fellow writer, and regular contributor to the letters to the editor, informed me that my last submission to this space caused quite a stir. I was completely unaware. He told me that after my piece appeared, the paper’s Facebook page exploded with entries, many excoriating me and my opinions. I was and remain blissfully ignorant of any of those. You see, I do not participate in any so-called social media. It’s not the media and as I understand it it’s not that social either. I am not a “twit” and do not tweet since my thoughts, unlike those of the tweeter-in-chief, take way more than 140 characters. I don’t have a Facebook account, nor a Snapchat, or any one of those things. My email address appears at the end of each piece that I submit and those who wish are encouraged to use it, as long as you identify yourself and do so without profanity or personal attacks. You may express your agreement or displeasure with what I have written, simply do it civilly. I make it a habit to respond to each in some way and have developed continuing email relationships with several correspondents who take me to task from time to time. I do hope to hear from some of you.
