Re: “Scott Crawford Refused to Sell Us a Plate of Food at Crawford and Son

Agree with Kander 100%. If you're a chef or a musician or any creative figure putting your work into the world, you are subject to any kind of critical attention whether positive or negative that comes your way. You don't get to control what the press says and doesn't say about you (resisting the urge to make political statements here). You don't get to pick and choose who reviews you and your work. It's hard to imagine someone like Ashley Christensen or Andrea Reusing come out of the kitchen, during service, to out-and-out refuse service to a member of the press. Sounds like this guy's ego has gotten the better of him.

And using the writer's previous work as a litmus test for whether she's "allowed" to do future reviews is not how this works, either. That's a cop out if I've ever seen one.

Re: “Hopscotch 2015: The festival's sprawling day party roster creates more scheduling conflicts

Yes, let's all 'sensibly' skip the 'pricy' festival shows, and then, if we're real lucky, we won't have any festival to worry about booking our day shows at. Thanks for the advice and local support, Allison.

Re: “Pokey LaFarge grapples with old-time music and political correctness

While I definitely agree that context is important, the whole "chill out, it's just a song" response seems kind of obtuse in 2015.
