I just want to clear up a few issues raised in e-mails and comment I’ve received lately.
1. Whether I am an idiot is a purely subjective question. We are unlikely to reach an agreement on it.
2. Profanity does not impress me. I work in a newsroom.
3. I’m about two decades past being a girlie, honey or dearie. (It’s a good photo, but take a closer look.)
4. I do not hate Skybus.
5. I really have been on cruises, flown on planes and stayed in hotels.
6. I am not wealthy. That’s why the blog is called Coach Class.
7. My mother is an extremely upstanding person.
