Snarky comments about my noble name

To the Editor:

Being a very sensitive person, especially when someone lashes out at my noble first name, I was wounded deeply by the snarky and pithy comments to my letter regarding teaching woke philosophies to kids instead of reading, writing and math. First, I was not referring to Florida or Fox information. I wrote the letter after reading the article in our local Virginia
newspaper (which is anything other than conservative.) I must say that I am honored that the usual “half empty glass people” read my letter and responded so eloquently, but I have worked hard to earn and live up to my noble name, and would appreciate it if they would give it the reverence and respect that it deserves.
