Letter: Childish columnists
Please, enough is enough! Can the Monitor not find someone to write The Insiders column who understands that the audience is adults and not immature high school adolescents? Ben Conant’s and Keith Testa’s humor is not clever or witty. It’s just downright juvenile. The last straw for me was the Aug. 28 column announcing the ceremony in front of the State House to read Martin Luther King’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech. The historical significance of the speech, now considered one of the seminal statements on civil rights, was completely undercut and dishonored by Conant’s and Testa’s sophomoric statement that the day’s reading would not include (King’s) “less celebrated speech, ‘I have a dream sometimes where I am having coffee with a dinosaur.’ ”
Funny? No. Childish? Yes.
Come on, Concord Monitor, can’t you find some grown-ups to write this column?
