To the editor:
I laughed my head off at Jim Larsen’s editorial “A long wait for first baby” in the Jan. 16 Record. The other diners in the pizzeria must have thought I was nuts. But no, I was only appreciating Whidbey Island’s own Mark Twain (of course Jim’s no slouch as a newsman either). I’m guessing the Record got a few complaints about the “indelicacy” of Jim’s references to, well, the process that makes babies. Ah well, such is the price of having a little fun in these polarized, sometimes bitter times. Keep it up Jim!
