I cannot help but comment on Marcia Wood’s “A visitor’s perspective” letter from the Feb. 28 issue regarding Bob Walter’s Christian column. Ms. Wood has her undies in a wad over your publishing of a regular column designed to give the writer’s perspective on his faith. She is so upset by it, she makes the amazing statement, it “is of no interest to me, and should not be of interest to any reader.” Really?! Who appointed Ms. Wood Czar of Interest?
I have very little interest in Carmel entertainment. But I would never presume to speak for other Current readers by arrogantly suggesting they all should thus be uninterested. During past and future centuries, far more people have been, and will be interested, in the life, death, resurrection and eternal significance of Christ than will ever be interested in the economic and entertainment development of Carmel.
Some years ago, I learned a neat trick in dealing with mass media. I read (or watch or listen to) the things of interest to me, and ignore all the rest. Remarkably, I find many others do the same thing. I suggest Ms. Wood give this a try.
