Page 46 of the Jan. 4 Xpress literally made me cry

I'm not Italian, but I was raised in a working-class Italian neighborhood in New Jersey. "Wop" isn't amusing; there are no "disclaimers.” Use of this word in the "Behind the Times" segment in the Jan. 4 Asheville Disclaimer is more than inexcusable — it is disgusting. I would very much like to leave the Bible Belt immediately.

    It’s a good thing the Disclaimer decided not to also run that piece about picking out the right Guinea Pig.

    I-40 and I-95 are open even as we speak. I am sure there are no bigots in New Jersey.

    Actually, this letter is so ridiculous it must have been planted by the editors to stir up some buzz.
