Kingman Letter: Purcell insulted Italians

I don't read Tom Purcell's column, but in Wednesday's Daily Miner (Nov. 7, "Don't let Jeep get all cheesy on us"), the first sentence caught my eye, so I read the whole column.

Who does this simpleton think he is? Does he not know that Italy makes some of the finest cars in the world - Fiat, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Lancia and Alfa Romeo, just to name a few. Plus many more fine products that we use every day, fine clothing, fine kitchen products, and - oh yes - Gorgonzola cheese.

He also wants tough guys to build Jeeps. Does he also want tough women to build them? I don't know your origin, but Italians who sing opera and eat Gorgonzola cheese have more brains than you do.

I think you owe all Italians an apology. Now go eat whatever slop you eat and listen to your heavy metal music.

Wrong Purcell. Tom is a columnist Darryle Purcell is the much-loathed PIO for Mohave County.

I laughed and laughed at the blogs. The letter was criticizing Tom Purcell, a national columnist. The Purcell that works for the county is Daryl Purcell. As per usual, in your brilliance, you don't know what you are talking about..

Jeep , Italian??????? No skunkin way. JEEP is merican, keep it that way. the only relation JEEP should have with Italy is hauling its way from the southern tip, thru Rome on its way to germany.

Ill take a race with any of them alfa romero any day.

I don't know, but maybe it's like this - if you were trying to enjoy a Saturday with a drive cross-country on Chicken Springs Road from Yucca to Wikieup, would you rather be driving a Bronco, or a Fiat?

Neil, wouldn't worry to much about Purcell as he has insulted just about every citizen in the county at one time or another. His boss is leaving, all we can hope is he will leave with him, or his position will be eliminated.

All that may be true but most Americans like to support American brands, at least when possible. Maybe you should return to Italy where all these things you mention are truly appreciated.

I think you will be waiting a long time for a appology from the local xenophobes in Mohave county, they seem to have no sense of decency, and as yet I know no known cure for their illness xenophobia!
