After reading the Dec. 6 issue, I am finally writing about the off-putting self-obsession in Joel Stein's columns ["You Can't Spell TIME Without 'I' and 'Me'!" Dec. 6]. By comparing himself to Facebook and Freud, Stein outdid himself. I find it more desirable to pore through a Facebook page full of mundane updates than to read his annoying column.

If this really is a game and Stein has won, the rest of us have lost. Our society and culture, as well as intellectual discourse, are poorer because of it.

All Joel Stein bashers out there should rather acknowledge that in today's narcissistic media culture, mindless blogs abound. At least Stein distracts us from all the nuisance tweets with columns that--while certainly self-centered--never fail to entertain.
