So proud of you, David. You've always been an awesome guy and a brilliant artist, and it's wonderful to see you making so many people happy with your cooking. The praise you're receiving shows that sometimes Seattle honors its own best justly. Bravo!

Ask her for her top five of They Might Be Giants' songs. Seriously.

Ed behaved inexcusably at that party. He's the younger sibling. Wonder who in the family may have given him such a poor example of boundaries. Possibly someone who has to look right about everything, all the time? Maybe someone who's making a lot of insulting accusations to cover up their own stink?

Also, remember that hate crimes (even "small" ones, such as relational character assassination) are often presented as "concern." Who knows what she might have been saying about Ed first before he started acting like a jerk -- we only have her word to go on, and is it completely trustable?

There isn't any possibility at all that the older sister might have been an asshole first, and that -- Ed's being gay beside the point -- he might have anger towards her for things she carefully kept out and edited around in her letter? I only ask this because she appears so absolutely perfect in the way she presents herself. It is pitched so completely how stable and reasonable she is, and how rude Ed is, but we don't have much else to go on in terms of her relationship to him otherwise. And she is admitting absolutely no fault or mistakes on her end. Which certainly could be true... or this could be total bullshit, due to the lack of nuance. (And also, the anecdote about the party is sure to win pretty much everyone reading this to her side, though we have no idea how she actually treats Ed otherwise.)

Great analysis, Sean. I love P4k -- five new reviews every weekday, as if they knew I always ripped Rolling Stone and SPIN open to the reviews section first when I'd get my hands on 'em. When bands get gripey about not being covered, the Travis Morrison story is always good to remind them maybe it's better to be passed over (sweet tender respect to Travis). The "millenial males" thing is weird, but probably wasn't P4k's way of pitching it.
