The AAR co-founder sent a nastygram to former Los Angeles Times editor John Carroll, and got one in return:
Dear Mr. Drobny,
I'm sorry you think my father wouldn't approve of my working for Tribune Company. I'm also sorry you went to so much trouble researching his writings from the 1940s to make your point. Fortunately, my father lived a very long life -- long enough to see me take the job in Tribune Company and to express his deep pride.
In my job as a newspaper editor, I receive quite a bit of mail from crackpots. So far in 2005, you're leading the pack. Keep up the good work!
And, because he's who he is, he decided to tell us all about it.
