Re: Re: Am I the only one to have read my own article?

Posted By: Doug Soderstrom, Ph.D. on October 30, 2005
Dear Lisa:

I am gratified by your woderful appreciation of my article "The Mindless American" as well as the one I wrote several years ago "If Teachers Were Congressmen."

And, of course you have my permission, and again I am gratified that you like my article so much that you would like to distribute it to those you wish to reach in regards to campaign reform in Ohio.

Let's do stay in touch as I would be interested in finding how people might respond to the article. At the time that I wrote the "Teachers As Congressmen" article, I could hardly get any of my pieces published.... even by small websites that probably no one ever took the time to read, but then came the surprise of my life, as "The Mindless American" article exploded onto the scene of the worldwide web..... and I think due to the fact that it got published on the "Common Dreams" site. As a result of that article, I would guess that I have received around 125 emails from people all around the world (some in written in foreign languages I am obviously unable to read) commenting on the piece.

All in all I have been absolutely overwhelmed. Not only by the response, but as well in regards to the time that it took to respond to each of my readers. If such ever occurs again, I hope that I have the willingness to respond to those who took the time to make my life as a writer worth living.

Your friend,

P.S. And let's do keep in touch.
