I rarely ever respond to opinions about one of these commentaries, because obviously it would just disintegrate into a never ending series of “I agree, I disagree. Oh yeah? You’re a bigger one…your mama is so fat that she…”

Well, you see what I mean. But the response to yesterday’s request that Russell Pearce show a little respect for the victims of the Aurora, Colorado shootings was overwhelming and pleasing.

Not just the ones who supported my position — I was surprised by the number of those — but I feel that some clarification must be made for some of the critics, passionate as they have been, in expressing themselves.

For example, to the Internet communicator identifying himself as ILOVESB1070, who referred to my observations as a “Liberal tree hugging agenda,” I must respectfully disagree. Your liberal label is inaccurate and far too general, and I gave up tree hugging years ago as a result of a nasty rash that inhibited hugging of any kind.

And Brian R., who wants to send me to the “senile, old folks home,” thanks, but no thanks.

Didn’t I make it clear, Brian? I don’t want to spend that much time around Russell Pearce!

I’m Pat McMahon.
