Ever catch abuse from somebody famous? It’s not fun.
Last year, a fairly edgy and well-known conservative writer took me to task for something I had written. Amid all the sophomoric profanity and abuse (he addressed me with “Hey Dipshit,” and his message went downhill from there), he did something interesting. He sneeringly called me an “ethno guy,” as in, “What is it with you ethno guys . . . ?” As in, only a dipshit would ever consider being an “ethno guy.”
