FOTW Hawking stalking
How would we like a wheelchair and a nappy?
Ever pictured larger-than-life New Yorker and Reg reporter Thomas C. Greene in a nappy? (that's a diaper to American readers). After reading Thomas' article on Stephen Hawking, reader Simon Wells got mad, bad, and bravely dared to go where no man has gone before.
Or since, presumably.
Here it is - unwashed and unabridged.
Did you actually give the go ahead for Thomas C Greene to actually put this article up on your pages? Todays comments about Stephen Hawking (who incidently IS probably the most brilliant mind of the 20th century) is quite frankly, completely and utterly uncalled for.
Many times in the past my views have differed from Mr Greenes (like his views on Steve Gibson) but this takes the biscuit!
What is he doing on your editorial staff anyway? Every article he writes is full of his own post operative sarcasm. Is Thomas Greene god? or does he think he is? He certainly has an ego to match the almighty as far as I can see.
Maybe Thomas Greene would like to spend a few years in a wheelchair having someone feed him through a straw and change his nappy? I don`t think he`d laugh about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis anywhere near as much then.
Thomas Greene has a veritable fountain of knowledge. Afterall he must have to get a place working for you guys. Its just a shame he talks so much complete utter bullshit.
I am a regular follower of "The Register" however Thomas Greenes articles make the register taste sour in my opinion. He certainly has no right to take the piss out of Steven Hawking much like he didn`t out of Steve Gibson, however the slurs today could not be more uncalled for.
