I bet this woman feels so proud that her article and own distorted version of the truth were published by the Reader, when in her country no other newspaper would even take a second glance at her letter.

Bashed The Wizard

I’m calling concerning a review of the Wizard of Oz in the August 16 edition of the Reader (Movie Listings). The person writing the review tears it apart and gives it one star. If these are the kind of people that you have working for you, the Reader belongs in the garbage (recycled, of course). This is absolutely ridiculous. I’ve never heard of anything as ridiculous as this.

I’m far from being a child — very far. I saw the Wizard of Oz when it came out originally. If this is what this person thinks, you’d better find someone else to do the job. I could do a better job reviewing movies than this person. You must have found him on the street as a sign-spinner or something like that.

Afro Puffs 2.0

I would like the Reader to consider having the author write a second part of “Afro Puffs” (July 12). It seems the letter writers in response to the article misunderstood the point of the story, or maybe they didn’t understand the point of view of the author who wrote the story. My interest is really in reading the letters in response to the story. They’re just hilarious! I’d like to see if I could read more of these letters, which is why I’d like for you to consider a second part of “Afro Puffs.”
