Letter: Votes are for favorites, not best

Write to Mountain Xpress
Graphic by Lori Deaton

Once again, the Xpress collects votes on people’s favorites and then announces which have been voted “best.” If we were to vote on our favorite color, you would announce which color is “best.”

Editor’s response: For the 23rd year in a row, Xpress has asked readers to vote in the Best of WNC poll. Favorite color is not one of the categories.
