To the editor:

As often as Jay Burnham submits a letter falsely attacking me, I can and will — with the readers’ indulgence — easily parry it. Burnham is like Prince Harry, every time he opens his mouth he heaps dung on his own head.

Oh, Jim-not-Joe, I see you are in desparate need of a chill pill. You are clearly displaying severe anxiety as evidenced by your most recent diatribe. I fear I bear some responsibility for your angst, and if so I am sorry for that. But let’s be clear, you just doesn’t like people countering your opinions with facts. And you surely do not not like clear and simple definitions. So you are going to hate this one. The definition of “projection” from the Merriam-Webster dictionary is: “the attribution of one’s own ideas, feelings, or attitudes to other people or objects, especially the externalization of blame, guilt, or responsibility as a defense against anxiety”. Take for example how you talk about basic dignity toward others, even as you write “every time he opens his mouth he heaps dung on his own head.” That’s projection. You claim that I am “morally and intellectually broke”. More projection. You repeatedly accuse me of being a “liar”. Again, projection. To be clear though, you say this about nearly anyone whose facts contradict your opinions. Lastly, and I am reasonably sure that readers of the CDS grow weary of your incessant ranting, other than for the humorous entertainment it affords, you claimed that I “lied” (more projection) when I said you were “ignorant of a definition”. At least you were partially right that time. The end. Mic drop.
