When I wrote to say I preferred "News of the Weird" over the "Asheville Disclaimer," I assumed my opinion was in the minority and said so [“Give Me Weird,” May 30 Xpress]. I thought the letter in defense of the “Disclaimer” was just a wee bit over the top [“Haters Gonna Hate,” June 13 Xpress]. Where did the comments about the "Comedy Police" and the admonition to "get over yourselves" come from?
It is just a difference of opinion, hardly worth a mean-spirited rant. Obviously, many people enjoy the "Asheville Disclaimer," and will continue to do so in the Mountain Xpress. I will get my fix of weirdness online and enjoy the high-brow crap in The New Yorker.
