Fred Flintstone seems like a pretty good guy, so some people may take offense when he is compared to someone who was involved in a domestic violence incident.

Earlier this week, Sally Jenkins wrote a column that compared Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was arrested earlier this offseason for a domestic violence incident, to The Flintstones. That apparently didn't sit too well with one reader.

In the Thursday publication of The Washington Post, there was one letter to the editors that stood out. One reader took the time to defend Fred Flintstone's good name after reading Jenkins' column.

It will definitely go down as one of the best letters to the editor of the year.
