By day, I'm a domestic violence prosecutor. By night, I read romance to restore my faith in love, relationships, and humanity in general. 

Follow Up to Yesterday's "Daily Rage Read": Digging the Hole Deeper

Yesterday, I posted a link to a this rage-inducing opinion piece -- Damsels in Distress: Why Do So Many Contemporary Women Read Old-Fashioned Romance Novels . The author, after being soundly eviscerated in the comments (which are excellent BTW, the exception to the "Don't Read the Comments" rule of internet survival), posted this response/addendum/lame-ass-apology -- My View on 'Romance Novels': An Addendum, Explanation, Defense and Apology.


You just keep on digging that hole deeper, Mr. Ghosh. If you ever do decide to read a few of those romance novels that you despise so much, might I suggest that you concentrate on those that feature that time-honored romance trope, The Grovel? You clearly could use a few pointers about how to apologize and earn a gal's forgiveness.
