I am a “conservative” local banker who lives in the “conservative” near West End and religiously picks up Style Weekly at Ukrop's once a week when I'm swinging by for a salad and ice tea. (Wonder if that will continue when Harris Teeter shows up. ... oh well, that's another story.) In the Sept. 2 issue I fell out of my seat with laughter towards the end of my read after finding Jack Lauterback's piece (“Social Studies,” Food & Drink) tucked away on page 40. You would think this “conservative,” 48-year-old native Richmonder would be sending a “this is awful, lewd and inappropriate” letter to the editor but I found Jack's article funny, exciting and I wanted to come park myself at his bar to watch all of these characters! Thanks for the laugh and maybe move him up a few pages! Ann-Cabell Williams Henrico
