[Vision2020] FYI to Donovan Arnold

Donovan, perhaps a little more time living with YOUR parents might have 
taught you something by way of decency in public discourse.  As it is, 
you're reacting like a flailing and kicking toddler whose ice cream cone 
just fell to the ground.

Joan Opyr is among the most intelligent, most talented, and most kindhearted 
people I've ever known.   I am pleased to call the entire Huskey-Opyr clan 
my friends and I resent your characterization of someone I care deeply 
about.   Knock it off.  Stay with the argument, or, better yet, just let it

Mr. Hansen,

The clue here as to the fact that she did address her
email to me, was that she addressed the email to me,
she even called me by name and put the word "to" in
front of it. Usually, when someone writes "To
Donovan", or "To Tom", or "To Bozo", that is the
wording used to infer they wish to address that

If you want to argue that she was talking to another
Donovan, like the singer, be my guest.

Joan does live with her mother and father in law. She
is almost 40, and a published author with her skill,
experience, and notoriety makes about the same or less
then a 2nd assistance manager at McDonalds. Writer's
do not make anything, the publishers take it all.

I did not get to the rest of your email because I
figured you still had your special lens on that only
allows you to see bullshit.

Take Care,

Donovan J Arnold
