Letter: A Hole in the Doughnut Story 

All due respect to Dixie Donuts, but holy cow! You couldn't have missed the story, you just decided not to write it for some reason.

Sugar Shack is a phenomenon. Selling out every day. Line out the door every morning. Cops competing to respond to automobile collisions at Lombardy and Leigh. Mustachioed men wearing superfluous fake mustaches just to get free doughnuts. They literally cannot make the doughnuts fast enough. That's the story, and you know it.

I'll suggest that an appropriate coda might be an editor's reflection like: "Gosh, are we writing about Carver again? What magic have they got that's fast changing what it means to be Richmond's coolest neighborhood?"

Please, go back and do it right. You won't lose face. We'll all understand.
