I have never written a letter to you or anybody else to voice my disgruntlement about the thoughts of someone else but your article in Sunday’s paper really upset me.
I am female — not young, but very mature — and have seen a lot of life but I would like to know if you have a daughter, wife or sister? If you are lucky you do have or have had a mother. That said why did you feel that you should go invite all the lonely males looking for a little action to go down to the city market area the night of Sept. 18 to look for tipsy women with one thing on their minds?
What was you thinking about? How would you feel if one of those females gets raped, robbed or beaten that night? You made an open invitation, even providing the date. I would not have known the date of this event if you had not provided it.
The world is full of enough perverts that do their own pursuing with drugs, duck tape and whatever their perverted minds let them think about without offering females as a smorgasbord for them.
I know you were outraged about this event demeaning males, mainly the portly and hirsute ones middle-agers like yourself but to offer females as a sacrificial lamb to all the lonely and perverted males to come get a little action from tipsy females? Come on, it’s like putting a person’s address in your paper and say, ‘Go knock on the door and enjoy the fun.’ Come on stop and think how many females and even males you have put in danger.
You stated that this tawdry show will destroy marriages in the Star City have you ever heard the saying, ‘It makes no difference where you get your appetite just as long as you bring it home’? Maybe just maybe some Roanoke marriages will benefit form this tawdry show, bring their appetites home and some lucky fellow will have the time of his life, more than one night if his partner makes it home without some turned-on male intercepting her before she get home.
By the way Mr. Casey have you ever been to a strip show or do you just undress ladies with your mind out on the street?
In case you are wondering I have never been to a male strip show and I am not promoting them, just thinking about your words that put females in danger.
I am not signing this as I don’t want my name to end up in the paper.
I did wait a few days to see if my mind had settled down and it has not. I am still fired up. You made a huge mistake writing that column as you did.
Shame on you.

3. Is your sense of humor so constrained you cannot see that?
4. Have you ever laughed in your life?
