Those good old British manners

Ariel Leve:

A few months ago I received a letter. “Dear Ms Leve,” it began. “Would you please be so kind as to ask your editor to remove your photograph from appearing with the column you write? It is the first thing I see on a Sunday morning when I am eating breakfast and it is making me sick.” I love that this was posed as a request. It continued. “It has to be said that it looks as though you fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.” I’m not sure why that had to be said. But the best part was the end. Because this person was British, he signed off with, “Kind regards.”
