I’m still disappointed at the decision to carry only one or two movie reviews per week in the print issue. This section has long been my main reason to pick up a copy of the Xpress. Call me set in my ways, but I don’t see myself going online to read film reviews. I don’t see the logic in giving plenty of space to “Starting Friday” and “Special Screenings” at the expense of current reviews.
Very good column by Milton Ready [“Beyond Stereotypes: Portrait of the Rural Mountain Community of Spillcorn,” April 4, Xpress]. Lots of insight into helping us transplanted urbanites comprehend the ongoing support for our current president, whom many of us consider an amoral charlatan, even when they are voting against their own interests.

Editor’s response: We share your love for print! Regarding the fewer number of reviews we publish each week in print, that decision grew out of our mission to build community through reporting on local matters. Since our reviews are our least locally focused content — and print space is limited — we made the decision to devote our resources and space to content that better fulfills our mission.
