Exceeds His Grasp

I do not know Randall Bloomquist, but I certainly recognize a vituperative scribble when I read it (“Too Much of the Goodness Thing,” 8/2). His attempt to annihilate Diane Rehm—program, context, person—appears to me to symbolize the emotional screeching Rehm and her programs oppose. Thoughtful Washington City Paper readers should consider his attack an example of an ill-tempered and anguished attack. A fair critique it is not. Perhaps it is also a reflexive lashing out at a growing public favor for civilized radio talk.
