FRONT OF BOOK Letters: A half page, including a letter from one Chris Davis taking me to task for neglecting my duties as ombudsman. I apologize, Mr. Davis, but unfortunately last week's overview was, indeed, written as usual. Unfortunately, "Editor" Dan Savage chose to publish an e-mail exchange between us instead, a move which most surely befuddles me as much as you.... Last Days: Didn't read.... NEWS Due to a lack of space, I am forced to sum up this week's section in a single word: tiresome.... SHORT FEATURE A wonderful, intelligent article by Matthew Richter--a writer, it should be noted, who is not a staff member of The Stranger. Could this be an explanation for such a high-quality piece being found within The Stranger's pages?.... FEATURE A snide "special pullout section" on Bumbershoot that is neither special nor worthy of being pulled out of the paper.... FILM Didn't read.... THEATER (See Celeb I Saw U).... BOOKS Didn't read.... ART None.... CHOW Didn't read.... MUSIC Thankfully, a short section due to the aforementioned "special pullout".... ETC. It's My Party: Didn't read.... Celeb I Saw U: Too gay.... I Love TV: Skimmed.... Savage Love: That Mr. Savage is able to infuriate both normal people and those whose behavior is easily labeled as "freakish" (i.e., the so-called "furries") shows that he exists for no other reason than needless self-promotion. The Stranger's readers would be better served by someone able to see past the glare of his or her own impossible ego.... Obits: Didn't read.
