    Dear Mr. Owens


    Has anyone seen Rotifer lately? He had a date with that nice Aunt Blythe late last week. I haven’t seen him since.


    Sincerely,


    Rotifer’s Mother

    Dear Mr. Owens


    Rotifer was so thrilled about the news of Mrs. Amasawa that he actually got out of bed before noon and made a cup of coffee all by himself.


    Your mention of Mrs. Amasawa also got me to thinking about my own first name.


    Hmmmm.


    Sincerely,


    /s/ Roifer’s Mother

    Dear Mr. Owens


    May I toss my bonnet into the ring, too? (Coincidence of coincidences, it just happens to be blue!)

    Dear Mr. Owens


    Deanna Durbin! Goodness, gracious, sakes alive, did that gal have some pipes! The mere mention of her name brings back such wonderful memories of my youth, going to the Saturday matinee at the picture show (before Rotty came along and ruined everything – Hello Rotifer, Bye Bye youth!).


    I am surprised that you remember her, considering that she stopped performing about the time that you were in knee pants (did they wear knee pants in Texas?).


    In any event, thanks for the stroll down memory lane.

    Dear Mr. Owens


    That’s a much more subtle form of parenting than I had to use on Rotifer, but whatever works!

    Dear cbrsarah


    Thanks for your rambling and barely coherent kind and thoughtful dialectic about Rotifer’s comments on the Mrs. of Mrs. Amasawa. I guess I let him expose himself* to too much popular culture when he was an adolescent.


    * à la the former mayor of Portland, Oregon.


    Please feel free to over-analyze my son’s avatar, too.


    Sincerely,


    Rotifer’s Mother


    P.S. You know I’m just playing along, right? That nice Mr. Owens’ small but loyal cadre of followers is not large enough to enjoy the luxury of infighting (except for that brazen hippie hussy shytimes2 – dreams of her forbidden fruit keep my poor Rotty awake all night sometimes)

    Dear Mr. Guant


    Oh now it makes perfect sense. That bad bad Mr. Garcia should have drawn his Aliens with hunting caps crawling over a moose illuminated by the headlamps of a pickup truck with Montana tags and a Tea Party bumper sticker.


    It’s nice to know that the P.C. Police are able to ferret out such well disguised racism masquerading as an innocent online comic strip.


    The less discerning amongst us salute you both! Keep up the good work!


    Sincerely,


    Rotifer’s Mother

    Dear Mr. Butler


    Please forgive, but I am a bit confused. If the depiction of Alien-like creatures dressed as Hispanics illegaling scaling the border fence is rascist, how would you describe a depiction of Hispanics dressed as Hispanics illegaling scaling the border fence? (10,000,000+ managed to get into the country somehow; Star Trek transporter beam? Wrong turn at Mexicali? Guests of Sigourney Weaver (and/or Macarena instructors) at various Democratic National Conventions?)


    I see the whole point here as a pun on the word “alien.” The quality of the pun itself not being an issue here (groan), I fail to see the rascism.


    Sincerely,


    Rotifer’s Mother

    Dear Mr. Garcia


    I’ve heard it said that the head table at a N.O.W. convention resembles the bar scene in Star Wars. You’re fixin’ to find out.

    Dear Teresa


    It was very nice of you to recycle “Help Wanted.” Was there a huge clamor for its return?


    Anyway, I’ve always felt I should do more to give back to the FA community. With that in mind, I’d like to be a …
