Steven Greydanus’s Turbulent Mailbox

My friend and colleague Steven Greydanus also happens to be one of my favorite film critics. And like the interesting “Christian hate mail” I describe in my book Through a Screen Darkly, Greydanus gets plenty of amazing (and disgusting) mail in his mailbox too.

You can check out his latest batch of questions-and-answers here.

My favorite letter and response?

The letter:

Steven D. Greydanus is a dumb ass writer. He doesn’t even know how to write. 3:10 to Yuma is the best western I have ever seen. You need to let Steven D. Greydanus go.

The response from Steven:

As a compound adjective preceding a noun, dumb-ass‚ should be hyphenated.
