"The likes of Mr.Pipes?"

Reader comment on item: Rashid Khalidi's Appointment at Columbia University

Submitted by Ruth Lowry (United States), Sep 3, 2003 at 21:20

Dear Dr.Pipes,

Regarding the dialogue with "the likes of" Rashid Khalidi," his animosity (to put it mildly) toward you is so obvious (and rude). Notice I did not refer to him as "Mr." An editor I once worked for told me "only a gentleman deserves to be referred to as 'Mr'."
So take heart, for at least he admits to your being a gentleman___which he is NOT.
Columbia, Columbia, WAKE UP!" Gee whiz, would I be surprised if they offer Osama bin Laden a honorary professorship in absentia? Nope

I continue to admire your work. Congratulations on calling Khalidi a liar...which he is.

Sincerely,
Ruth Lowry
Submitting....
