Charlie Rangel should have remembered his Twain before writing a letter to the editor.

"Never argue with someone who buys ink by the barrel and paper by the ton."
Charlie writes a letter of 712 words to the editors of the New York Times.

They answer by footnoting Charlie's letter and writing 1,542 words in response covering the notes, prefaced by a 234-word introduction.

Let it be a lesson.
