I liked a lot of what you had to say, Mike, but I’m confused. I thought you respected your friends. Why did you call them Karen and Ken and then use the same names for that couple in St. Louis? Reducing people to memes dehumanizes them. I don’t think that helps. It’s like calling someone a Mick, a Wop, or a Polock. It’s demeaning.

I write whatever I want, like poetry The New Yorker wouldn’t dare print. Visit me at denisesheltonwrites.com.
