My fellow community columnist Lois Moore's latest piece offers advice to those who are considering trying out for the next group. Be ready, she says, for nasty e-mails from right-wingers egged on by talk radio. They will, the left-leaning Moore cautions, call you names.
I sympathize with Lois, but I think I can reassure her. I don't know who eggs them on, but her side has plenty of folks who have not hesitated to express, in sundry colorful ways, the view that my very existence is a tragedy. Boorishness is thoroughly bi-partisan.
