I received an email from a reader named Ken who recently purchased my first book. He also sent a photo of the way he likes to travel.
There is much to approve of in this photo. I particularly like the well thumbed corner of the book, indicating that the couldn’t wait to get to the next page as he read it.
I also received an email from my leftie stalker, Dan.
You probably think I’m some kind of left-wing stalker by now, but anyway, I just wanted to reach out and apologize for calling you a pedophile apologist – even though I know you don’t like apologies 🙂
I’ve learnt a lot from you Adam, the reason why I’m addicted to your blog is that you have taught me so much about the right wing/alt-right/conservative mind, which has been invaluable. You have caused me to shift my perspective (to the right) on a few issues and have tried to educate my fellow lefties about the errors of our ways, especially over the past decade, so thank you for that.
Another thing – I’m almost certain this will sound patronizing, arrogant or just pathetically lame but I’ going to say it anyway.
Try to spend less time on the internet.
Getting so angry about what superhero film people watch or getting so involved in American politics is a sure fire way to be miserable. Truly. I know you are tethered to the internet because of your blog which, in turn, helps your book sales, but I’m honestly concerned about the price you will pay in terms of mental anguish.
I am heartened by both of these emails. Ken’s because of the wonderful support, and Dan’s because if my enemies are begging me to stop what I’m doing then I must be doing something right.
