“Dear Mr. Lentell,
Having heard people discussing your ‘pieces’ in the paper, I find they are all wondering what the motive is behind your putting them in. Is it to convey truth? Is it to amuse, or is it to satisfy your ego and to let you feel that 50,000 readers, or more, of the Herald, are not reading the ‘piece’, but looking at the name of John Lentell?
To prove the point is not the latter, I challenge you to put in the ‘pieces’ without your name below them.
