After Reading the Rage-Mail, Take a “Long Pause”

Darren Hughes’ Long Pauses is one of my almost-daily stops.

Imagine my surprise when I went to the site today expecting another insightful film commentary, or a profound political analysis, or a revealing anecdote, and instead I found him editorializing about my column about profanity.

Mr. Hughes, I’m flattered and humbled and a bit giddy with gratitude.

    Originally I mentioned Darren’s “ponderous political commentary” when I meant “profound”, so I’ve corrected that. Wouldn’t want to scare anybody away from Darren’s blog.
