Curses!

I really dislike when my snark is edited.

What they printed:
Wes Clark said that Americans need to get moving.

Memo to the former Supreme Allied Commander/Presidential Candidate/Fox News consultant: Howard Dean speaks for me. Not you.

What's Salon got against deep-fried chickpeas? Sheesh.

Odd. I got printed in Salon once and didn't get edited like that. And your letter was a lot funnier. I think they should have left it... Congrats, btw.

yeah, salon is pretty decent about letting things rip -- they've printed several of my letters to the editor and not once have they edited me

they must have thought the falafel was over the top? weird. the screener must be a Clark fan ;-)
