    Write a letter

    To the guy who complained about Bill Maher, and to anyone who hates the radio talk hosts who claim that the Tour isn't a real sport, here's my advice:

    go to their website, click on "contact us", and write a very civil and thoughtful letter.

    I just sent one to a Detroit talk radio station telling them, in a very tactful and diplomatic way, that they're a bit out of touch with their audience. More people in my office follow the Tour now than follow the Detroit Lions.

    If you don't write a letter, they'll never know how stupid they sound.

    Boy, there's a news flash there!!!

    (sorry... couldn't resist.... maybe if the Lions brought back Wayne Fontes? That guy was uber-cool.)

    Wayne Fontes recently took a job in the Helvetica office. He's the guy who changes it from 12pt Italic to 14pt Bold.

    that was, quite possibly, the best joke of all time.
