Straw Woman?


Dear Editor-in-chief Rick,

I must confess to being a fairly regular reader of your amusing, if irreverent, "Low Tidings" amusing except for your periodic beating-up of Karen. Especially your (crucifixion/resurrection?) piece about her Easter Sunday meal (The Independent of April 19 "Low Tidings").

If Karen is your wife, your skewering in the last issue should provide more than enough cause for a divorce on grounds of "public ridicule and deliberate defamation of character." If you did nothing about her apparently more than lousy cooking but eat it up, and she reads your takes on her and did nothing about them, then, congratulations to you both: you certainly deserve each other. So there must be something more to Karen than you are letting your readers on to something that more than compensates for her lousy culinary skills (and vice versa). Pray, tell what could that be Rick?

I rather suspect, Rick, that Karen does not exist as a real person but a straw woman invented for the purpose of humor and beating up upon in "Low Tidings." Confess, Rick!

Editor's Note: Karen has other skills that far outweigh her lack of culinary acumen.
