Musto, you're out of your mind, but this interview with Sarah Silverman was excellent. Sarah sounds very together and she is funny, even if I'm not into ca-ca jokes and degrees of anal excretion. Tell Sarah she's appreciated by a much older demographic. You too, sometimes. Anne Meara Manhattan
DIDN'T DO THE WRITE THING
Come on, your "All City" section [Camille Dodero's blog, villagevoice.com] is a joke. If you're going to choose a writer, at least choose someone who knows something about graffiti/street art. It also might help if you choose someone who has been in the city for more than a month. Alex H. Boulder, Colorado
