Letter: Playing possum
Re “Possum ridicule? That just points to a bigger problem” (Monitor Forum, April 9):
While Dan Williams searches for meaning in nature, he needs also to search for a sense of humor. Elaine Kellerman’s satiric letter merely pointed out the nuttiness of making a possum the subject of an editorial in the Monitor on a day when so many other important issues went neglected. Seeing her letter as an indictment of people for no longer appreciating traditional values seems to me a giant leap into despair that would have been prevented by a good sense of the comedic.
