Dear Ms. Dowd,
Several years ago I wrote you a brief note of support; you had made an accurate comment that, in typical fashion, had been purposefully misinterpreted by the bad guys, who were attempting to unfairly pillory your work. You actually wrote back, thanking me. In view of the tide of mail that someone in your position must inevitably receive, I was not a little shocked and delighted, and I remain grateful for that small gesture to this day.
I do not think that will happen this time.
