No offense intended

To the editor,

I've just read last week's letters. Ms. Davis took offense in "No good, Gus" because she thought the ad wasn't funny, especially since it personally affected her.

As someone who watched his vibrant grandmother die from Alzheimer's, I'm familiar with what she's gone through. I also see the early signs of it in my father.

But as someone who doesn't have their panties in a bunch, I can laugh at the ad. Being able to laugh when things are bad shows emotional stability. Celebrate life and loosen up.

Gus: Keep those ads coming. There will always be uptight PC police trying to make this world a "safe and more fair" place. This isn't kindergarten. Life is dirty and cruel. Learn to laugh, and it's a better place for us all.
