A Remarkable Letter

Now that the cranks can post comments directly to message boards and even blogs like this one (ever so rarely, thank goodness!) the way has been cleared for really good letters to the editor. Via Atrios, this one to the New York Times ranks among the best:
Surely it must have been a slip for Maureen Dowd to align the artistry of my late husband, Gene Kelly, with the president’s clumsy performances. To suggest that “George Bush has turned into Gene Kelly” represents not only an implausible transformation but a considerable slight. If Gene were in a grave, he would have turned over in it.

You really have to read the rest of it. It's suitable for framing.
