I was very proud of a recent exchange with a Sparty over email, so I thought I'd share. If it helps just one Michigan fan realize that civil discourse is possible with people of lower educational and moral standards, then I've made a difference in this world...
(I kid I kid Sparties... don't be so sensitive)
Anyway, Sparty compliments some of my work and requests a wallpaper of Greg Jones (?!)
I write back:
"Appreciate the request. but to be honest with you, there's no way I would ever do a MSU wallpaper. I'm sure you understand. Thanks for emailing."
"I understand. I probably dislike UM as much as you dislike MSU. Figured it wouldn't hurt to ask though. go green"
See?.... Very professional and calm interaction between two people that wouldn't piss on the other if he were on fire....
My job here is done.
