Letters for May 23, 2002

The cat in the habit...

In closing, Dania is never mentioned in the article! Just another New Times scam (much like Jen Karetnick's restaurant reviews.). Oh, in no way is this meant to demean Vicente Lopez -- just the lazy asses at New Times!

Harvey Slavin


Editor's note: Thanks for the kind words, Harvey, but you're wrong. The story described how Lopez spent 20 years of his life working in Dania. May we recommend an Evelyn Woods course?

Not the editorial: I'm writing to let you know my thoughts about your magazine. First off, it is great for when I want to find out about what concerts are going to be coming to town. Also, I like it for locating movies and restaurants. There's one thing that I don't like, though, and that's all the ads in the back. Particularly the strip clubs, the swingers' clubs, XXX video shops, and the call girl/guy ads. Up to page 69 (no pun intended), it's a very respectable and informative paper. It's not the sort of paper you can leave in the waiting room of a doctor's office, though, because of the trash found in the back.

I believe there's a place for everything, and your paper shouldn't be the place for that kind of garbage. Maybe you might consider a pullout section for that stuff. Or just create a whole paper strictly for that kind of advertising so I can avoid having to deal with that garbage altogether. I hope that you don't take this too lightly, because I know of a lot of people who feel the same way. You might want to survey it. Who knows? I could be right.

The "Best Buyout" item in our May 16 Best of Broward-Palm Beach issue incorrectly stated where Fort Lauderdale Assistant City Manager Pete Witschen was searching for work. It was South Carolina. New Times regrets the error.
