I am often surprised and dumbstruck over the responses that Tell All gives to people who write looking for actual advice. I am even more surprised that this person continues to have a job, considering how unprofessional the "advice" usually is. How is it that a paper that typically has outstanding content can continue to support a column that is so utterly terrible?
Let no good deed go unpunished
I am appalled that the city wants to fine former Madison Ald. Brenda Konkel and her partner $300 for allowing the homeless to sleep on her porch and having lockers for them (Week in Review, 9/25/2014). The city should build more affordable housing and ask the homeless shelter to extend its 60-day period until the homeless are able to get back on their feet to find a place to live and get a job.
Bully good show!
Dean Robbins' review of the latest Ken Burns masterpiece, The Roosevelts, seems to indicate he has a short attention span and little interest in delving into America's history ("History the Hard Way," 9/11/2014).
Mr. Burns' amazing films are a treat in our household, and we always come away with a significantly broader perspective of what was happening in our country before our time.
In one recent Burns interview he said that he makes these films because he loves his country. That is clear to us and I am sure millions of others who take the time to absorb his great works.
Warning: Contents may have shifted
One of the things I miss most in recent changes at Isthmus is the disappearance of the table of contents. Now I have a really hard time locating the movie page. It moves around in the issue -- last week I believe it was on the centerfold. It's driving me nuts!
