Baffling

The Vern Smalley letter I highlighted the other day has garnered many letters to the Chronicle, all negative. Except for this one today. I think.

Tolerate diversity
(The title is an error, it’s different in the paper)

Vern G. Smalley tells it like it is, and the local toleration crowd wants him run out of town (letter, Jan. 16). At a minimum, they want the Chronicle to stifle him (letter, Jan. 17). That’s perfect. That’s the bipolar Bozeman liberal establishment I know and love. The whole town is having a nervous breakdown!

(Hey, Vern, what are you? Five years old? Every adult knows the emperor has no clothes. But you are not supposed to say that out loud, not in Bozeman, anyway.)

So now we have God, Charles Darwin, and Vern Smalley all saying the same thing. Imagine being one of Bozeman’s grand-high social engineers, who has spent years blissfully working on “The New Theory of the World,” and then somebody like Vern Smalley comes along and restates the obvious. What a bombshell!

Er, what?

    I tolerate diversity only up to a point. Over-sexed
    gay men are most welcome to do anything they want to
    each other, but they won’t hame my support in adoption
    or marriage or any special rights just because they
    are over-sexed.
