They probably like lions, too.
Anyway, my grandfather has been assuming my ponytail and north Austin zip code aside, that I was a conservative, pro-NRA, deeply religious Republican. He regularly would send me various anti-democrat, pro-family-values-whatever-that-means, forwards, even 'CC'ing me on a letter to the University of Texas Board of Regents asking them to boot out one of my favorite professors because of some (extremely) ill-judged post-9/11 remarks. I don't know why he CC'd me on that.
Anyway, there's a reason for this bit of preamble, it has a punchline. Yesterday, he sent me a really nasty piece of Republican propaganda, bitter and nasty toward democrats. It was pretty hateful. So I sent him a letter saying most of what I said in paragraph one of this post, and asking him to please don't send me any more forwards, because they hurt, and I don't need pain coming from my family and loved ones. Read it a few times again to make sure it wasn't over the top, and sent it on. I don't regret this.
His response is...well...I have trouble with this, though it's funny (GD=Granddad, J is of course me):
Damn I thought you were a Republican. Sorry you are not. Will not bother you again.
I have grammatical issues with this.
