I didn’t mention in my previous post, The fall of Conrad Black, that I also forwarded the message I sent to Mr. Black to The National Post ‘letters to the editor’ e‑mail address. To my surprise, I received a reply yesterday thanking me for the submission and telling me it would be considered for publication. It must have been an automated response.

Later in the day, an edited version of my message appeared in the Letters column for March 30.

I’m no end of amused.
