Even though we’ll never forgive him for creating and legitimizing the use of “air quotes,” giving amateur comedians a physical gag they needed like a hole in the head, Steve Martin is still what experts like to refer to as “a funny motherf*cker.” To wit, an open letter the actor, comedian and writer has penned…
