I’m starting a new column, chronicling stand-outs from the daily maelstrom of Looking Closer email.
Most of these letters are real. Some of them are amalgalms of a variety of messages. Some of them are what I read between the lines of the things readers really wrote.
Each installment of Reader Mail-strom will be updated over the course of the day, so check back to see if I’ve responded to you.
WHERE’D GODAWA GO?
“I was wondering if you could shed some light on something: I read the book Hollywood Worldviews and enjoyed it very much. I tried to contact Brian Godawa through his website, but it is not being updated apparently. Is he publishing anything online? Blogging anywhere?”
ANSWER:I’ll ask around. Can anybody help out? Know what the screenwriter of To End All Wars is up to these days?
THIS IS WHY I BLOG … SOME READERS ARE JUST SO FRIENDLY
My beloved ,
My name is kate, I am a beautiful young black African woman from Africa. I saw your profile today and decided write to you. I hope to start a very cordial and lasting friendly relationship with you that will be beneficial to both of us in the nearest future. Feel free to contact me through my private mail box at: ([THAT PRIVATE MAILBOX ADDRESS HAS BEEN DELETED TO PROTECT THIS BEAUTIFUL YOUNG BLACK AFRICAN WOMAN]) I will tell you more about myself and also send my pictures to you after receiving your response. I am waiting to read from you the soonest possible.
Tell you what, I’ll make an exception to my own rule and I’ll respond to you if you order copies of Auralia’s Colors and Through a Screen Darkly. Deal?
