Insensitive to sweaty Dix

Re: Kieran Report “Dix opens his mouth and inserts foot,” Oct.4-10

Dear Mr. Kieran:

I am an avid follower of your articles and the majority of the time I agree with your point of view. However, the above article was at best insensitive.

I have lived with a Type 1 Diabetic for many, many years and one of the symptoms of low blood sugars can be profuse sweating. Given that, I believe you should have chosen your words more carefully and/or cut Mr. Dix some slack unless you were privy to all of the facts.
