Leaving the Country is a Cowardly Choice

I was reading the Inquirer letters section today, when I came across this specific missive. Its title was an hostile and un-judicious generalization, and its text, while onstensibly well-meaning, was incoherent and rambling, so full of trite, hackneyed cliches that I almost laughed out loud reading it. Towards the end, the letter-writer’s sweeping accusations of “murderous schemes” and “nasty attitudes” were so poorly phrased that I wondered about his sanity — and English proficiency.

Then I saw the signature at the end of it, and I could only roll my eyes and mutter, “No wonder.”
