This just in ...

If you work for a publisher, you can be sure of one fact: Crazy people will send you crazy letters.

Take this fax that came through this afternoon. It starts off having something to do with 9/11. Then, midway in:

We do not want Our Mothers, Our Wives, Our Children, Our grand-children to be insulted, to be lied to, each day of our lives, to have a "mentally-sick" Canadian man, by Name: Hillary Rodham Clinton, with the help of all known, treasonous, Presidential candidates, and all Television News-staffs, through our Nations, knowing Hillary Rodham Clinton is a "mentally-sick" Canadian man out of Calgary, Alberta, Canada!!!! His picture each day on television, campaigning, is an insult, is a lie, to Our Mothers, Our Wives, Our Children, Our grand-children, to us as men, and as human-beings!!!!

Well, either it's from a crazy person, or Obama has really taken off the gloves.

Note: Any comment insinuating that Hillary Clinton actually is a man will be deleted.

But if you want to insinuate that she's Canadian, be my guest.

That diatribe sounds a lot like the spam comment that showed up on my blog (and many of my friends' blogs) not long ago. It started off crazy, and then got worse. He went on and on about, well, I am not sure since I was skimming and then deleted it immediately. But it went on for dozens of paragraphs. I don't remember him having anything in particular against Canadians, though.

That's too crazy to be crazy. I haven't seen that one until now, but I did get an email saying that Obama was a terrorist sleeper cell.

Honestly, if Hillary Clinton was a treasonous, mentally ill man from Edmonton, it'd be cool... but Calgary? No way! Get the torches!

Canadian? That's absurd. We all know she's from Chicago... eh, Wellesley... um, New York... Eh, Scranton...

So, Calgary, you say?

Some of my best friends are Canadian. This is an outrage, and an insult to them all.
