Joe Váradi — it was not your piece that inspired mine, but another article entirely. I never like to reference the writer when I disagree because not everyone responds kindly and some people are downright hurt. So I often just give a general overview and my take and leave it at that.
All that said, I’m delighted and a bit charmed that, thinking it was yours, you opted to own up and without snark. That’s a rare thing in this world and I shall promptly go and read yours, too.
