I have a question for Mr. Reed. Was this a preview or an op-ed piece? If this were a real event preview why were the relevant facts omitted with the exception of naming two acts along with getting the time and date right. There’s a reason why newspapers start off young journalists in the obituary department. Obviously Mr. Reed has fast tracked himself past fact checking and accurate reporting of information in lieu to the position of yellow journalist. I’m not criticizing Mr. Reed on his career goals but from his piece any unbiased observer can see that the only qualifications it takes to write for the Indy these days is to have the ability to be negative, frames sentences and have a thesaurus handy. Sorry Mr. Reed but spell check doesn’t count and just because you own an Ipod doesn’t mean you’re qualified to write about a music event. Which that said I look forward to Mr. Reed’s reviewing of local restaurants in which he will use his crayon scrawled notes from the third grade, analyzing his school’s cafeteria cuisine, as a basis for critiquing a two star establishment.
