Open Letter to a YouTube User (absmart)

A YouTube user named absmart made a profoundly ignorant comment on a YouTube video.  By definition, most YouTube comments are profoundly ignorant, but this one is in a class all by itself.

I sent him the following message, but I’m not sure he will even see it.  So, I have decided to share it with the world, so that everyone can appreciate my wit and wisdom.

I’ve never been published except anonymously on a Christian website, but I’m working seriously on selling a few magazine articles on fast food management, armchair philosophy, and Christian parenting.  That won’t get me into the National Writer’s Union or the ASJA, but he doesn’t know that.  For all he knows, I am in print.  (I’ve had people ask me before where I’m published professionally!)  So don’t laugh when I call myself a “creative professional.”
