Dear Editor,

    I have to respectfully disagree with both the recent opinions about the Simpsons. I instead claim that the Simpsons is in fact so good, and so incredibly hilarious that we should take time out of our busy schedules towatch an average of one rerun a day. Seinfeld reruns wouldn’t hurt either.

    A recent letter claimed that Simpsons lovers have desensitized themselves to the and are in effect embracing evil. Well, I’d like to counter with the experience of many a convert, who on first contact mistook the missionaries for god-named-Mormon-worshipping polygamists with horns, but with time opened their hearts to the gospel.

    I suppose that they too became desensitized and were getting chummy with the devil.

    The Simpsons is actually pretty intelligent humor. The number of film and literary allusions is incredible.

    Granted, I don’t recommend immersing newborn children in it, but a light dose of sarcasm and cynicism does an adult body good. It’s like Jerry once told George, “It’s like the sun, you can’t look at it for too long.”
