    Mr. Martin,

    It is all too easy for someone who is being targeted by ridicule to simply back down. I'm glad you took a stand on something as simple as wearing an ascot.

    I watched Jon Stewart in his little video, commenting on your choice of neck wear; then I watched several other news anchors, and then I went back and watched Jon's video again.

    In short, all of the news anchors look so ordinary; very plain, no real sense of style, taste, or any indication of depth of personality. When I watched Jon the second time, I noticed how forced his laughter was, when he tried to ridicule you for wearing an ascot. Jon's video leaves the same sort of taste in my mouth I get after chewing a piece of gum for far too long.

    On behalf of myself and my friends at the Portland Steampunk Society, I'd like to say “Bravo” for your choice of neckwear. There are many who could stand to take more than a few tips from you as to how to dress themselves.

    Steven Criss
    Portland Steampunk Society

    Our society occasionally holds Victorian dinners for visiting dignitaries. Should your travels find you out on the west coast, we would be honored to have you attend one of our dinners. Victorian formal not required; the ascot will do just fine. ;-)
