I just couldn't resist... so here's my letter to the editor, appearing in today's (April 21) Duluth News Tribune.
"You wonder if the writer of the April 12 letter ("A comedian for the Senate? Is this a joke?"), the entire text of which was "Sen. Al Franken. Embarrassing," was equally embarrassed about Republican U.S. Rep. Sonny Bono, the TV comedian and singer; Republican Sen. George Murphy, who danced his way through many an MGM musical, and, of course, Republican President Ronald Reagan, star of many a fine Hollywood movie, not the least of which (really) was the comedy "Bedtime for Bonzo," co-starring a talented chimpanzee."
