Re: “To Kill a Mockingbird's South 50 years later

I wonder why the writer feels it's okay to misspell an author's name while quoting her for her own ends (Flannery O'Connor) or use such needless, out-of-place invectives as "fucking" to make her point. These unintended errors, along with some mighty flippant sweeping generalizations (eg., Scout "representing 'liberal' principles"--who sez so!) came across to me as feeble attempts to sound intellectual and hip (or as Miss O'Connor was fond of satirizing, as "interlec-chul"). These regrettable gaffs detracted from what might have been an engaging essay. It was hard work to have to try to tune out such static in order to get at what the writer was trying to say. A good writer relies upon not only the truth of her heart, but also the wise counsel of a good copyeditor and the ability to blend her personal feelings effectively and with humility, with the insights and experience of great writers who have gone before her.

Re: “May: Midtown Dickens

I've heard Midtown Dickens in New York City at CBGB's and Greenwich Village and here in the Triangle. They are great musicians with a soul-stirring sound. Y'all will be glad if you come out to see them! A fan, a mom, and honored contributor of the upright bass, Susan
