    Erika: I think that asking readers to “pay attention to something different,” as you’ve phrased it, makes light of the turmoil in Minnesota. It trivializes what our country is going through right now and the suffering and anguish of people on many different levels. I have been following your blog for quite some time and am surprised and disappointed that you would make such a strained insensitive juxtaposition between current events and a feature article about famed writer Sinclair Lewis.

      Lisa, you’re right that the presentation is strained. It did not seem possible to mention anything (positive) happening in Minnesota without an acknowledgment of the much more painful circumstances that have been dominating my own (and certainly, many others’) attention this week. But, having failed in the moment to find adequate phrasing, perhaps it would have been better to omit any mention. I apologize.
