Recently received in the Letter to the Editor voicemail:

“I would like to submit a letter, and it would say, ‘Who is your movie critic? Exclamation mark! Please do not let them rate movies while under the influence. Exclamation mark! Three stars for The 15:17 to Paris? Question mark! 'Oy,' in capital letters. O, Y. Exclamation mark!' My name is Teddy, like a Teddy Bear, Rodosovich.”

Mr. Rodosovich then proceeded to spend the remaining 90 seconds of his 120-second message spelling his last name, his street address, and his email address.

Scott Marks responds:

Dear Teddy Bear,

As my review indicated, Mr. Eastwood hired the real-life heroes to play themselves, not three stars. Other than the two orangutan pictures, I’ve never had any use for Clint Eastwood. Sorry for any misunderstanding.

I would like to know what you don't like about Clint Eastwood, Scooter. I liked "Dirty Harry" which was newly shocking for its violence at the long ago time. I also liked "The Unforgiven" for Clint's revenge speech promising to hunt down his enemy, kill him and all his family and raze their home to the ground. Whew. Catharsis. Don't you ever feel like that?

I would like to know who voted you official gag-deflator. :P

Don't forget "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" as it definitely captured that Southern Gothic genre well.
