Re: “Chaco's Cafe

It's been a favorite of mine for many years. I've been going there since they took over the place from its previous owners. Great for breakfast and lunch. Get there early for lunch because the crowd from D-M fills it up.

Re: “Letter to the Editor


I guess we must be reading two different articles, for in the version I read, nowhere does Jefferson Carter say that poets suck. In my version of the article, he criticizes political poetry and points out some timeworn cliches in the poems he presents.

You don't point out where you disagree with his evaluation of the examples he cites. Does that mean you agree with his critique?

A more effective defense of your position would have been to have presented some political poetry from one of the great poets you mentioned.

Great poets write great poetry, regardless of whether it is political or not.

Re: “Harper Lee's Mixed Legacy

"To Kill a Mockingbird" is a childhood memory of a loved parent, but it is only half of the true picture, which we get in "Watchman." I see no contradiction between the two works.

The readers' love for Atticus or their view of themselves is a separate issue and does NOT take away from the meaning or relationship between the two works.

Re: “Beyonce Accused of Cultural Appropriation, Reflects Millennial Cultural Mores

Does that mean I can't drink German beer or French wine or eat Chinese or any Asian dishes, as well as Mexican, various European or African foods? Can I whine about people in other cultures who wear Levi's?

What totally unmitigated nonsense.

Re: “Best Malaysian

To the contrary, this place has excellent food, and the prices are reasonable. I don't know what her problem is, but I've been there several times and was never disappointed.

Re: “Poppy Kitchen Closes at Westin La Paloma Resort

Can't say anything about the other restaurants, but I did go once to Jackson Tavern and never went back. The four of us agreed that the food wasn't bad, just bland. The Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout was the best part of the meal.

Re: “Smokin' Showdown Pits BBQ Hot Shots Against Each Other at Hotel Congress

David Bryant,

You're right. If there's a better BBQ than Mr. K's, it's definitely out of town.

Where is Mr. K's?

Why spend $30-35 to find out who is No. 2?
