Never know how a letter will be quoted!

I always wonder whether letters to the editor are seen and read. Now I see how one of my letters was quoted. A comment I made regarding reporting of terrorism:

Choice of terminology is a moral statement. If morally neutral terminology is used for morally repugnant acts, it reduces the sense of repugnance. And when the same terminology is used for a moral and immoral act, a moral equivalence is created.

is being quoted to defend Feng Shui and Eastern approaches in general:

Very amusing! Glad to know my letters are being read!
