Dear The Atlantic,
I read six paragraphs. They had nothing to do with the headline. I think you put the wrong headline on this article. Same as all the others. Try getting to the point someday. Thanks for nothing!

Dear The Atlantic,

I hear it told in rumors and whispers that you want us to write letters to your magazine, and you wish to publish them. Whosoever heard of such a thing? Writing letters to magazines? Pish tosh. Never before has a magazine accepted letters, and fewer still have found fit to publish them. The staffperson or staffpersons credited with coming up with this outrageous "idea" should be sacked within a fortnight. When I wish to entertain the opinions of the ribble-robble, I shall fly open my sash and stick my head out the window and ask them as they fornicate on the dust heap below. "Tell me your estimation of proposed economic policy or thoughts on a current political event!" If you are not aware, my previous assertion was intended to be sarcastic. I care not to hear the meandering, ill-informed, insipid, blathering commentary by the know-nothings that overpopulate our everyday streets with beggars and orphans. Would you? Take me, for example. I am completely and utterly ignorant of the practise of magazines publishing letters from readers, yet I still feel entitled to go on and on and on and on and on and on about it, when all persons even slightly concerned have long ago lost interest, and nary a reader would wish to subject him or herself to continue reading my poorly-worded gibberish, especially when I have clearly demonstrated an appalling lack of knowledge on the subject under discussion. What a tremendous waste of time reading that would be. Almost as much as the time that would be wasted in writing it. So, you see, both the letter-writer and the letter-reader have wasted their time. Perhaps you should re-title your magazine from the current title The Atlantic and re-christen it Time Wasters Monthly to better accurately reflect the contents within.

Dear The Atlantic,

How do you like being the Pacific's little biatch?

Dear Atlantic:

Thank you for having the Sabres, Canadiens, and Senators in the same division as us. That way, we don't look so bad.

Wait, now The Atlantic is getting hate? James Fallows and Robert Kaplan are national treasures. I've been away for a few years, so I'm probably missing something... what's the problem?

Dear the Atlantic,

You may have had the best U-Boats, but you'll never have the Bikini Atoll...

Sincerely yours,
