E-mail, Feeds, 'n' Stuff

Which one of you gave them my name?

Here's one of the funniest e-mails I have received in a long time:


I am contacting you on behalf of ARCADE Magazine, a quarterly publication focused on architecture and design in the Pacific Northwest. We’re preparing for our September issue and would like to include some words from people like you about Randy Gragg. As you well know, he has recently left his post at The Oregonian, and we want to know what you have to say about his tenure there, his opinions, his role in the Northwest design community. Has his contribution been valuable? Has his work been influential or productive?

If you or anyone else in your office or organization would like to share your thoughts with us, please reply to this email, or you may send a Word attachment. Please keep your responses brief. We will be in touch if we need to edit your words in any way.

All best,

Kelly Walker

"...some words from people like you. . ."


Okay, that made me laugh.

De insulae williamsensis nil nisi bonum?


maybe you can be one of their "creative contributers" [sic].


if a magazine can't spell "Contributors", you know, hmm...

"...from people like you about Randy Gragg."
Why not go to the people those people directly, instead?

"As you well know," then why tell me again?

Who wrote this Randy Gragg for Randy Gragg?

Please keep your responses brief.

I believe your two word comment to WWeek.com sums up his departure quite adequately (scroll down).
