Agree To Disagree


Thank you Editors of The Garden Island News for the wonderful Forum page, Thursday, March 17. (Read Forum page below)

Gene Lyons' column is always a joy to read. He has many admirers all over the country. He's articulate, funny, serious and profound.  (Hope you read The Hunting of the President.) To Google 'Battle of the billionaires' --that 'fool thing'-- would be, "...several minutes of your life you'll never get back.",  is so perfect I, as a writer, am green with envy.  (Read Gene Lyons column below)

Also, in case you didn't know, Gene Lyons  loves horses, cows, and dogs. If my memory serves me, he has Great Pyrenees and his house, which makes his wife happy, too, looks a little bit animal worn and torn and friendly.  How could anybody help but love a guy like that? I know he'd love my house. Anyway, I hope everyone read TRUMP'S BRAND IS CHAOS.


One suggestion: Editors, please restore the discussion site. I think we've all grown up enough we could handle it well. It's so wonderful to respond to other letter writers-- politely, reasonably, with passion--it's so much what America was and what it could be again.


By the way, your OTHER VOICES column is always a pleasure to read. Even if we don't agree, what's fascinating is how often we  to find a moment when  we do agree with  the person with whom we disagreed.  We're multi dimensional folks. We're not gingerbread men. Wouldn't it be a dull world if we all agreed about everything?

Please give us another chance.

I always enjoy Gene Lyons myself. My two favorite syndicated columnists have passed, they were Andy Rooney and Art Buchwald, They are my writing mentors. wink emoticon
