Reader's Diary #1832- Roberto Monti: 'He, I Say, He' or 'A Flash of Black Light'


(This is a pre-written post scheduled to appear while I am vacationing in Italy, Vatican City, San Marino, and Monaco.)

I began enjoying the voice in Roberto Monti's "'He, I Say, He' or 'A Flash of Black Light'" despite it making me think of Foghorn Leghorn more than the intended Zorro, mostly for how it oozed ego and bitterness.

It's about a guy who, when angry by some perceived injustice, had a lifelong habit of visualizing Zorro swooping in and dealing with in a better way than he is ever able to himself.

Not a bad premise, but I'll admit that I quickly and unfortunately grew weary of the ego and bitterness.
