Re: “Richmond Native Named New Head Writer at SNL

Sure he considers himself a New Yorker now he's been there so long, but thanks! Fixed caption to be technically correct.

Re: “Screen Queen

Ed. note: Caption updated to avoid confusion and more accurately reflect the content of the photograph and story -- and less of the author's bitterness that "Enlightened" was canceled while "Girls" took off. Though as Nussbaum stated during the interview -- the two may not be connected at all ("But I don't know, I don't work at HBO," said Nussbaum).

Re: “Screen Queen

@Jackie. Thanks for your comment. I apologize if that caption is confusing, but nowhere is it attributed to Emily Nussbaum. She may disagree with that characterization. As she says in the piece, she did find the "voice of a generation" tag ridiculous on its face. But she loves the show and adds that she believes it "blew open doors" in terms of presenting memoir and comedy and different kinds of bodies on tv. That was my shortened assessment of the character -- and part of her appeal. Thanks for reading!

Re: ““Duke Sucks” Book: Rehashing for Haters

In response to this letter: This article was not a review of the book, it was an interview feature with the author about why he wrote it. Regarding the letter-writer's other chief complaint about the true away games. The book does contain original research in its attempt to discover whether claims by "haters" are justified. In my final draft, I had included the term "non-conference" to describe these games. That was omitted in the version that ran. The fact is, from 2001 to 2011, they played three away games out of conference that were not in neutral arenas (page 65 of the book)--a low number by other team's standards. Duke schedules roughly 10 games out of conference a year, disregarding contractual obligations like the ACC Challenge. I would suggest to the author, if he is interested in the details of the reporting in the book, to read the book to determine further whether it was well-reported. Again, this was not a review and "shocking and hilarious" was my personal reaction, as an average college basketball fan without a stake in the Heel/BlueDevil rivalry.

Re: “Dookie Rouser

Joking, that was a phrase used in the book. Agreed, there is a lot of hatred of successful teams. Perhaps I didn't fully explain or detail the new information provided in the book. But if you're interested in the rivalry, I would definitely suggest checking it out, to see if you think the claims hold water. Regardless of team loyalty, he's a funny writer--from Richmond! Thanks for reading.
