An Open Letter To Chad Andrew Herring

This is a political season, and so it is a season of open letters, like this Open Letter To My Friends Who Support Donald Trump or this Open Letter To Bernie Sanders. 

I have always felt a certain antipathy toward the open letter genre, even though I once wrote one. They mostly feel like fake invitations to dialogue. They list grievances, disagreements, demands, all with a posture of conciliation that is unbelievable. Like, “We welcome the chance to talk with you about all the ways you’re wrong.”

I’ve never read an open letter to someone the author thought was right.

So here’s my crack at it, my open letter to Chad Andrew Herring.

May 12, 2016

Dear Rev. Herring,

I think you’re pretty great. We all do.

Sincerely,

Rocky
