Dear Ernst,

I enjoyed your article, precisely because I disagree with it — respectfully, of course. You do bring up excellent points, no doubt. It’s just that my experiences were hugely different.

But hey, it would be a hella boring world if everyone agrees on everything, eh? Sometimes I wish I had two lives — one to spend at home & one to spend traveling…
