We Get Letters!

Posted By on Thu, Dec 1, 2005 at 10:15 AM

Here at Seven Days, it's not uncommon for me to receive letters and e-mails from the general public. While I always encourage folks with to write to THE EDITOR to sing praise or vent frustrations, some of them prefer not to. 

I still consider their communiques to be public domain, however, so I've decided to start posting some of them on this blog. That way all of you voyeurs can catch a glimpse of what it's like to be me.

Here's an example from Ruff Dave, who titles his missive "Real,Good,Music."

You wouldn't know good intelligent music if it came up and bit you in the
ass. (Aren't you the one who said Caralina was an up and coming band to be
on the lookout for? Cara-who?) And give me a hypocritical break. Seven
Days, environmentally aware, yada, yada. Yeah, sure.

A quick visit to his website reveals that Mr. Ruff's recordings feature none other than Bill Mullins, one of my favorite area guitarists .

You can listen to a bunch of his songs. He invites you to drop him a line to let him know what you think.

Keep 'em coming, you wacky Vermonters!

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
