Not a Good Start 

I don’t wish to comment on John Wangsgaard’s letter about guns [“More Guns Prevent Crime,” Jan. 24, City Weekly].

But I do have a suggestion for him. His letter begins “There is nothing more frustrating than trying to reason with someone who has made up their mind and is also convinced of their own moral superiority.”

John, you might find reasoning with people less frustrating if you didn’t insult them with your very first sentence. Peace out.

    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.
