Talk about uncalled for! I think that it was *supposed* to be a play on the
words of one of the popular Christmas songs. And you are trying to turn it
around into a self-proclamation of having no fulfillment in life? Shame on
you! Your broadcasting it to the whole list only amplifies the
self-aggrandizing nature of your email.

I, personally, enjoyed the email. I could sympathize with the Susan's
frustration when it feels like nobody reads what she's written. I'm glad
she wrote it.

So, there!
