Carol Edison Will Be Missed 

“Astounded” best describes my reaction when I learned of the “retirement” of Carol Edison [Five Spot, June 16, City Weekly]. The Chase Home Museum, which houses the state’s amazing collection of folk art, is indeed one of the real gems of the Beehive State. Edison has been the heart of the collection, and her perseverance, dedication and wisdom have made it one of the nation’s best.

I have no idea who ultimately made the bird-brained decision to let her go. Whoever it was should be run out of town on a rail.

    Mr. Rasmuson, I enjoyed your column "Walk the Walk" [Dec. 18, City Weekly]. I found it very interesting.

    Amid all the hullabaloo over location of a new prison, aren't we forgetting something really important? How successful can our prison be in rehabilitating offenders if we make it more difficult and costly for their families to visit?

  • Becker Does It Better

    I always enjoy City Weekly's Hits & Misses column, and this week's version [Dec. 4, City Weekly], was no exception. Unfortunately, the Rocky III segment, while a nice complement to John Saltas' piece ["Mayor Maybe"], is wildly inaccurate.
