The beat goes on
Re: “Clyde Stubblefield’s Gift to Hip-hop” (Isthmus.com, 2/21/2017): Wherever it was, you knew it was going to be good if Clyde was playing. So many bars gone and past; and they’d always have cheap drinks that night, as if you weren’t already feeling lucky as hell to be listening to Clyde and the amazing musicians playing with him.

Scents and sensibility
I’ve read and enjoyed Isthmus every week since 1980. In recent years I have developed a migraine condition that makes me extremely sensitive to strong artificial orders.
I was unable to read your issue two weeks ago because the paper was infused with a strong artificial scent. I assume that was due to Valentine’s Day. The paper smelled like People magazine or Cosmopolitan, with their perfume ads.
So I was relieved to read my scent-free issue last week. I trust you folks are not switching over to scented paper?
