Stink Bombs (Boo), DJ Rick Danger (Yeah), Food Bank (Good luck!) 

After reading the Street Talk reporting Richmond Interdepartmental Code Enforcements' appalling and brutal use of skunk odor stink bombs against our most needy, down-and-out residents seeking winter shelter in abandoned buildings (“City Police Use Stink Bombs to Fight Vagrants,” March 18), I was eventually relieved and happy to read Brent Baldwin's fantastic Arts & Culture article covering the terrific benefit honoring the former Cellar Door Club (“Duckie Redux,” March 18).

As a high-schooler back in those days, a lot of us teens were too young and alcohol-free in public to attend events at the Flood Zone. Brandy Wood's flashback of such times, '80s music and friendships really brought back a ton of memories. Hopefully the Fuzz will decide to allow clean air at the exciting DJ Rick Danger-hosted event. After all, proceeds will benefit our city's food bank. Food always tastes better unpoisoned.
