Irony: still dead after all these years

Even though the Ludic Log's readership, always tentative and tiny, has dwindled away into nothing since the one-week hiatus brought about by my computer problems, I do still get the occasional dopey hate mail. Here's today's, in response to this entry:

"Alright, so I accidentally came across your website and found a most horribly written piece on the states in the Midwest. Naturally, people are really scared of what they dont know. Obviously, you dont know shit. I live in Indiana and hate this state too; but, I do not agree that you have the right to stereotype all the people of this state into a horrific category. Since you have proven to me by way of expression that you are uneducated, do the world a favor and quit putting things on the internet irresponsibly. By the way, it is obvious you hate the Nazi regime (and you should), but didt they stereotype Jews the way you stereotype Indiana people? Go take a sociology class and drink your milk.

P.S. - Chicago is not all that. If you like pickpocketers and high murder rates, then that is the place for you."

The things I love the most about this hate mail:

1. How she seems to think it's okay for HER to hate Indiana, but not me. (I am reminded of the hate mail I got from a Jewish woman in response to a satire of Ann Coulter's racist Oscar article, in which the letter-writer said she hated the niggers too, but I should quit making fun of the Jews.)

2. How she says that people fear what they don't understand, and then ends her letter with the "scary big city, home of muggers" line.

3. She has me pegged with the whole 'uneducated' thing, but do they really give out free milk in sociology class? 'Cause if so, I am THERE!
