Win some, lose some

When the mail came today, I got a letter forwarded from the Grand Forks Herald asking its editors how long they were planning to carry the "childish rantings" of "that Eric Bergeson." The letter was in reference to a recent column I wrote about going to a Twins game in which I wrote disparaging remarks about Boof Bonser (who did fine tonight, by the way).

"Haven't you ever had tough times, Eric Bergeson? Think long and hard about that! Some people aren't always perfect like you!"

The letter was anonymous, signed only, "A GF Herald reader of 45 years."
