Letter: Wilson column not humor



I cannot understand how the Danielle Wilson column (Oct. 18) about her father’s fall that resulted in his broken neck was labeled humor.

A humorist’s goal should be to solicit a smile, a grin or a laugh from the reader. This column didn’t elicit any of these responses. Remarking on the inconvenience and a sibling’s lack of assistance due to alcohol was the usual whining, insulting and negativism in Danielle’ writing. Her column should be labeled “My Negative Viewpoint.” It’s definitely not humor.
