Jerry Seinfeld Rips Newspaper Columnist

Jerry Seinfeld Rips Newspaper Columnist, The comedian takes issue with a critic's piece on the overuse of a word he made famous. Seinfeld fires off letter to the Times ripping critic, Jerry Seinfeld really has a lot of free time on his hands.

On Tuesday, the New York Times published a column by Neil Genzlinger critical of screenwriters he thinks overuse the word "really" in their scripts.

"Civilization crumbles a little bit almost every time I turn on the television," Genzlinger wrote, "and a single word-and-punctuation-mark combination is inflicting the damage. You've heard it too, no doubt, and if you're a person who values grace and urbanity and eating with utensils rather than burying your face in the plate, you've winced whenever some TV character has spewed it. It's the snarky 'Really?,' and it's undoing 2,000 years' worth of human progress."
