Among the best latest letters:

“The greatest hypocrisy in all of [the Kirk Talley ordeal] might be the various levels of forgiveness that the industry seems to offer its fallen performers. In one concert Kirk Talley seems to have gained a level of acceptance that Michael English probably still hasn’t reached. I would be curios to see how we would have welcomed Talley’s return if (before his demise) his hair would have been a little longer, his clothes would have been a little more casual, and he had achieved crossover success as a CCM artist. I have a feeling we would be silently using this situation as evidence to support the theory that CCM music and its artists are more worldly and sinful than “good ole” southern gospel.”

A very fine point, this one. I wish I’d thought of that. At any rate, this fine letter and many more are in the most recent mailbag.
