Well, Chappy. Looks like I'm the only one who ever comments on your column. And it's been, what? a year or so?
Do keep trying.
Humour comes to those who fall on their faces oft enough. People do eventually laugh.
The International Guild of Satarists and so on.
Oops. Confused as to which alias I'm using today.
I thought it was the city of jerks.
Am I not right?
Good to read something with real wit and, well, nastiness. Other than the local lagers, your column is the only thing I miss about Portland. Gave up trying to teach humour to StevenTM or StephenTM or what ever his pretentious name is. Poor boy just does not have the chops, as my musician friends say.
Best wishes until my next visit.

Not only are you (still) not funny, you have no life.
Sad, but what can one expect here in the wilderness? If one has talent one goes to New York. Or London. Or Seattle, even. But Portland? I enjoyed my brief stay here trying to inject humour into this "newspaper", but unfortunately, it was beyond even my skills.
I return merely to enjoy the lagers. If only the humour were on a similar level. One could only hope.
Anyway, nice seeing you again. And, as in past encounters. . .

Has anyone at the Mercury moved beyond sophmoric humour?
This is pitiful. Sad.
Not funny. Still.
And there is so much writing talent in Portland, too. Mostly juniors or older.
Still trying, I see. Harder than it looks, isn't it.
Well, no use putting off the obvious: Not funny.
