Reader Mail: Doubly-Sucking

You guys have jumped the shark. I had my doubts when you celebrated one year of daily publishing with that gay-ass video. The week off that followed was no big deal. It’s got to be a grind.

But this ‘summer schedule’ is 100% bullshit. Either do the website or don’t. And where have your marvelous ‘featured writers’ (or whatever you call the people with their own equally marvelous pencil sketches) disappeared off to? One case in point is Margaret Berry. Where is Part Two of the Wedding Guide? It’s been almost three months. Nothing worse than a website that doesn’t keep its promises (yeah, you never said when Part Two would materialize, but I think it’s been time enough by now, don’t you?).

I used to really like your website, but it has basically sucked since your week off in May, and doubly so since Rosencrans got married. Maybe I should just walk away. I don’t know. Johnny Bench (I think) said that no one is a pull hitter in the first year of marriage. Could be. But that doesn’t explain everything.

What’s up, TMN? Are you in or are you out?


Ed. Response: I don't know why, but people are always putting an extra N in my name, weird right? RB
