Horace?

There is something suspect about those who write letters to the editor, for which excessive moral discourses, obnoxious conceptions and tedious details seem to be essential ingredients (just like a blog?).

Yesterday evening, I suddenly decided to jump out of the closet, into the world of letter-to-the-editor writers. An article in the Norwegian daily "Aftenposten" mentioned "Horace", claiming he was a "latin poet". Outside the Anglo-Saxon world of poorly translated Reuters news, "Horace" is known as Horatius (ie Quintus Horatius Flaccus, or Horats in Norwegian).

Funny enough, the editor immediately answered my email, and modified the article.

There is a much more interesting exchange of emails here: Coke. Izzit.
