To the editors:
I was watching TV on a recent Saturday,
and noted that your writer, Stuart Goldman, was
the featured guest on “Good Day L.A.” Having dismissed Goldman as a raving lunatic—after having read several of his more virulent diatribes in your paper—I was surprised to find him an articulate, bright, rather soft-spoken young man.
My question is, is Goldman merely constructing his vicious in-print personality to cater to his fans, who obviously delight in watching him while he takes shots at everything within jabbing distance?
Gorgeous George and Muhammad Ali proved a long time ago that all the world loves a tough guy—especially when he has a big mouth. But you might advise Goldman that were he to write in a style more akin to his TV self, he’d find an audience that went
far beyond the cheap shot groupies who are presently feeding his ego.
