Mike. Would you have commented about your distain for Ethel as loudly if you would have been steered on a tour of Northwest D.C. where most of the white folk live as opposed to the Northeast quadrant which is largely composed of African Americans? You're thinly veiled reference is telling.

Mike, please! You're supposedly the editor of this large metropolitan newspaper. That's what you call it, don't you? Then why, oh why, do you make such a glaring grammatical error in just the second sentence of your article? "Ethel had steered my wife and I (gasp!) very wrong." Would you say "Ethel had steered I very wrong"? Didn't think so. If reading a newspaper is an intellectual exercise, one that our children should engage in, then I suggest that you take a remedial course in grammar so that you don't set such a horrendous example in the future.
