Grateful for “Greetings”

To the editor: I just wanted to compliment you on “Greetings from Toxic Town” (Dec. 5, 2002). I had some knowledge of TXI, but after reading this, I see it’s even worse than I thought. We live in Arlington, so the poison wafts right over our house. That may be why we all have so many allergies and respiratory problems, stuff we never had in smoggy southern California, from where we moved two years ago. (I can’t wait to get back there and out of this cesspool.) As I’m sure you know, they’d never get away with this in L.A., not with the strict regulations and laws there. Anyway, thank you for doing this article; it is really an excellent piece of work.

To the editor: I just wanted to say thanks for being caring and brave enough to write about all the pollution in Midlothian. I found it very informative and enlightening (especially the part about President Bush’s appointee from that awful company, Monsanto). Anyway, thanks for keeping the Weekly alternative.

One Hand Clapping?

To the editor: You were absolutely right about the band being hot (Bertha Coolidge at the Black Dog, Hearsay, Dec. 12, 2002). That stage held a lot of talent. I have a deep respect for any musician who masters his craft as these men have. I have no apprehension about applauding; at one point in the show, my friend and I agreed it would make more sense to clap continuously while these guys played. I got the feeling everyone packed in there felt the same way, based on the response. By response I mean the claps, shouts, hoots, hollers, whistles, etc. For your information, these were the sounds filling the room that were not created by instruments, at least not directly. I don’t remember you clapping all alone, in a silent venue (just trying to fit in, huh?). For the three days following that show I had no voice. If only your paper were so fortunate.
