To the editor:
What a delightful surprise! I find Joe Whitfield’s columns informative, but (the April 1 column) was laugh-out-loud funny. I’m not sure if any of it was intended to be taken seriously, given the fact that it appeared on April Fool’s Day. Were six actually real questions? Hard to tell since only answers were given, and some seemed somewhat unlikely to have been responses to actual people asking questions. But perhaps that’s just the kind of person he is. I look forward to more of his columns and perhaps more surprises.
