In case you can't read Alan's handwriting, his letter is transcribed below.

Dear Editor,

You should teach your stupid, puerile reviewers to edify, and not to be harmful to "artists." In any case, I admire your altruism, by hiring retards as intern writers.

Alan [obscured]

We've obscured Alan's last name and address, even though he's an asshole, because when we've put addresses on Slog before, we've been accused of trying to incite violence against those people.

I don't know what "harmfulness" Alan is talking about, but our Genius Awards issue comes out tomorrow, with profiles of the 15 most fascinating artists in Seattle.
