I think you do know by now, that I have been deeply disappointed in the manner in which you have chosen to take this very respected public platform - which was worth something to this community - and turned it into a grotesque shadow of its original self.

Mahesh, you're unelectable, in my opinion, chiefly because you are far too sensitive.

When Ryan wrote his introduction to your letter in a humourous way, he put your post in the best possible light by presenting it as a clever, ironic rebuttal of your opponent's missives to the media. Just like, I might add, the title it had when someone emailed it to me, "Not A Press Release!"

Without that introduction and that title, it's just a long-winded, pompous rant, full of hyperbole and insults. For example, "It is this kind of pathetic posturing supported by an equally pathetic and uncritical media, that turns cities in a developed nation into a third world, banana republic."

Now you see fit to accuse one of the humblest, hardest-working citizens I know of "self love" simply for having a sense of humour?

You should be ashamed of yourself.

I did think you made one good point: "Painful as it is to watch someone suffer from [self love], it can be healed with some quiet and retrospection." I just think that it applies best to you. Your writing makes it clear that you view yourself as a deep and enlightened thinker, far above the intellectual downfalls of "small and weak minds".

Physician, heal thyself.
