It's being argued to death, so I thought I'd weigh in on the whole "is it real?" thing. The authenticity of the letter seems suspect. On one hand, it all appears pretty legit. On the other, I can't fathom receiving a letter like the one Chris sent and saying "Yes, this merits a response". However, I think there's a more relevant point in all this: Chris thinks it's real, and is responding as such. History would indicate that even if we sent him undeniable proof that it was fake, he would continue to see it as real, because he's Chris. Once he's decided something, reality takes a back seat. He's producing some of his most interesting content in years. I'd count our blessings.
