I got a lovely email greeting this morning from someone so threatened by my little blog that he felt it necessary to also send me a private email message to further insult me. Here are the comments left last night on my post, Stupid Things I Learned In College:

Rae Ann, you failed to learn from the course and the book. Such a disappointment you are. I cannot believe you are 37 and a mother--good help your kids.
YOu better look closer at those tv pictures of "looting" food and you better look closer at what the mythology says that looting rarely occurs.
Such a dumb ass you are.

oops, typo, i mean to say "god help your kids" mothers shouldn't be so dumb
oh well, i guess i could start a blogg entitled, "dumb students i had in college"
And here's the email message:
If you didn't fail the course, you should have. What a dumb student you must have been. You didn't understand a thing about the disaster mythology. If you think the TV pictures disprove the mythology then you are even dumber than you sound in your blogg--and you don't even have the courage to stand for your ignorance in public. You are a dumb ass.
Well, henry fischer or whoever the hell you are, you prove my point if you are suggesting that you are a college professor/textbook author. You are so lost in some ivory tower oblivion and have no clue about the real world. What is in your textbook is only one point of view. I have the common sense to question what I've been told when it is contradictory to what I see. I never failed any courses, I never had any professors with your name (assuming you are who you say you are) and never had any textbooks written by Henry W. Fischer, and I graduated magna cum laude (1990).
You don't sound especially intelligent to only be able to call me a 'dumb ass' and to insult my children. Listen buddy, you've got a lot to learn in this life if you think ANYONE is going to be impressed with your sorry display of verbal ineptitude. And you are supposedly an author? No amount of education and 'credentials' excuses plain old bad behavior and meanness. Maybe you need to go back and reread my post. Your comprehension isn't what it should be. You are implying things that I NEVER said.
And what kind of ignoble IDIOT goes around insulting mothers?
I think you are threatened and malicious and bitter about something. I hope you work that out before YOU have children. God help us ALL if you already have.
And by the way, where's your blog, mr. public courage??
