One of the best letters The London Times ever received

This 1946 note to The Times was never published in the paper, but was preserved by the staff…


To the Editor of The Times.


I have just written you a long letter.

On reading it over, I have thrown it into the waste paper basket.

Hoping this will meet with your approval…

    A lot of blog commenters need to take that approach. I can’t tell you how many comments I’ve spent 5 or 10 minutes on and then not posted once I realize my comment doesn’t need to be heard or is too involved for the comment section.
