Regarding Joe Wessels’ column “Looking for Help That Helps,” well said! I got more than blank stares the last time I encountered the suburban church group literally two inches outside our church door on the sidewalk handing out sandwiches while our worship service was going on, leaving only litter besides nothingness in their wake.  

Outsourcing Local Newspaper Jobs

0 Comments · Tuesday, December 23, 2008
Theyre getting cheap labor from India and turning their backs on Americans in order to solve their problems, but they expect us to buy the newspapers and advertise in them as usual. Do the people a favor and check into the outsourcing and post it all over the place.  

Pushing My Buttons

After I read Larry Gross’ “Looking for the Joy” column (issue of Dec. 10), I ended up shaking my head as tears came streaming down my face. He has this way of pushing my buttons.

Statement of fact: Cincinnati Zoo = Good, Creation Museum = Evil. Let's be clear: It's evident to anyone with a brain that the Creation Museum is a horrible joke told by some seriously unfunny people, and the Cincinnati Zoo is a place of happiness, truth and light.

In her review of Ryan McGinness' art exhibition Aesthetic Comfort ('Dark and Dizzy,' issue of Nov. 12), Laura James states that the artist has created something "entirely original." I've been a great fan of McGinness' work since I first saw it at the Contemporary Arts Center's Beautiful Losers.  

Ode to a Bartender

I’m a regular reader of Larry Gross’ Living Out Loud column. I’m constantly amazed at how he puts himself out there, and last week’s column is no exception (“My Bartender and Bar Politics,” issue of Nov. 12). His “ode to a bartender” story was wonderful.

Buddakhan restaurant is still a bit of a secret downtown, but word is getting out ("Reflecting Over Crab Rangoon and Smiles," issue of Oct. 15). Happy hour should mean smiles all around, especially for those who are serving you.  

Still Need Capable Journalists

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 15, 2008
I want to thank Joe Wessels for his well written and much needed column on today's newspaper journalism ('Read All About It While You Can,' issue of Oct. 1). My wife and I have seen a continuing decline in the quality and abundance of good journalism in newspapers today.
