What was the point of the Johnny Bangerter piece [“Johnny’s Rotten,” April 11, City Weekly]? I would call it a cover story, but use of the word “story” implies purpose and reason.

Was it awareness (of what?)? Was it to sell advertising (always and all ways), or proof Sid Vicious did die in vain? Here’s a real news tip: Chicken seen crossing the road! Why? To get his story in City Weekly! CW could spin it that he was a pedophile ... got caught trying to lay an egg!

Don’t worry about accuracy, it’s the City Weekly. Who cares? Who would even know to care? CW: effectively, noise without change, all well within acceptable advertising range ... and most likely what John Bangerter (Johnny Rotten) was really all about!
