A note to The Lerilin Breeze
To the Editor-in-chief of The Lerilin Breeze, Mr. Sulovir Soryn the First,
It has come to our attention that, in the latest number of your publication, you refer to a peaceful event in Marali as the city being, we quote, “besieged by a massive army of ants, unparalleled in size and strength”. We are yet to receive an official report from our specialists on the exact details of this massacre, but we must nonetheless write to you to express our disgust by your choice of terms, that turns The Lerilin Breeze, up to now a reliable source, into a tabloid of the worst kind.
Ants have their own business to attend to. They seem to have found the soil of Marali propitious for their constructions and to the establishment of new family lines. We know there were weddings and palaces being built in recent moons, and we should rejoice. No ant has ever attacked a human without being attacked first!
We ask you, consequently, to issue a retraction in your next publication, correcting, as much as possible, the unfair treatment you have given to our noble friends. You should do it as soon as possible, as they are upset with the news and the trauma of being despised and misunderstood may have deeper consequences than you would like. You know what happens to despised and misunderstood communities, don’t you?
