Letter to the Editor: Ear protectors

Dear Editor:

In 1997, Evander Holyfield fought Mike Tyson in a much publicized, hotly contested, heavyweight boxing match.  

Thinking it would be a relatively easy win, Tyson did not spend much time in preparation for the fight. He was the heavyweight champion, and Holyfield has been less than spectacular in his previous fights. 

As the match wore  on, however, it became more and more obvious that Holyfield was getting the better of Tyson.  Frustrated with his inability to take command of the fight, Mike Tyson bit off a piece of Evander Holyfield’s ear.  

The moral of the story: I highly recommend that Hilary Clinton wear ear protectors to the next debate.
