Re: “Editor's Note

While you're recovering from the flak you got in response to the decision to drop the movie listings, I thought I'd offer a friendly suggestion for another editorial change. I think I speak for a lot of vegetarians (and vegans) when I say the restaurant reviews aren't as helpful as they could be. I usually get little or no sense of how well the restaurants you review accommodate vegetarians. Do they have many options? Are they well executed?

Out of curiosity, I recently searched the Chow Features on your website for the keyword "vegetarian." I found 17 occurrences in the last three years. That's 17 out of 156 issues--barely over 10 percent. We're a minority, sure, but so are medical marijuana users, and they get a weekly column. Shouldn't we be on the radar of an alternative newsweekly more often?

Re: “Out of Somalia

I went there on Friday, July 29, 2011, and their sign said they were closed from noon to 1:30 p.m. (not 1:00 p.m., as this article states). But perhaps they've added an extra half hour to their mid-day closure time since it's summer.

Re: “Guest Commentary

At chuckj: The example of child labor made perfect sense to me. No, it wasn't brought up i Hoffman's column, but it puts his arguments into context. The economist Ha-Joon Chang has also used child labor to illustrate how economic arguments can be made to justify things that are almost universally reviled. And child labor--like minimum wage laws--can make good economic sense. (Child labor laws ensure that a good portion of our workforce gets adequate education; and anything that puts money into the poorest hands--like minimum wage laws--is an economic stimulus, since people in lower social classes spend a greater portion of their incomes than the rich do.)

Re: “Delicious Pizza for a Great Cause

I don't know if this is happening to anyone else, but I keep getting a "Bad Request" message when I click on that link.

After Googling it, though, I think I found the flyer that was supposed to be linked:

Re: “New Southside Eats: Los Guarachez de Don Shuy

I think you meant "Southside" in your title.
