Pushing Back On Pushback

A question for Don Richey (Letters, 5/5), whose advice to Eugene liberals is as follows: “If you’re having a difficult time dealing with pushback, the smart thing to do is stop pushing. Else get out of the kitchen, as it were.”

Is that what you do, Don? Doesn’t seem like it. Here’s my advice to anyone who would follow Richey into his mixed-metaphor kitchen: Never give advice that you yourself would not take. It makes people suspicious.

Or at least, it should.
