From the mailbag...

Yet more emails from the guy who wants to fight me over my DiFara post...

In a message dated 7/31/2008 5:45:56 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, antoniothefirst@gmail.com writes:

A few things:

1.I'm not at furious at you. I'm disappointed by your insolence and wanted to teach you a physical lesson. Mr DeMarco is one of the finest artists, working in any medium, living in New York. Your disrespect was unwarranted. My desire to fight you is not hate-fueled. It just makes sense.

2. Why choose between loving and fighting? Why not do both.

3. I have never fought at the amateur or professional level.

4. A mailbox? That's silly.

5. Fight me.


My response:

"True, This! —
Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold
The arch-enchanters wand! — itself a nothing! —
But taking sorcery from the master-hand
To paralyse the C├Žsars, and to strike
The loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword —
States can be saved without it!"

Also, first day with the new thesaurus?

Good job.
