The monthly publication Bingo Bulletin believes that Mountain Xpress readers have received the wrong impression about it as a result of an article on the “Asheville Disclaimer” page.
Xpress would like to make it clear that the article that appeared on page 80 of its July 21-27 edition was intended to be funny, as indicated on that page, and not intended to describe actual facts. We're sorry that the folks at the Bingo Bulletin have taken offense. We had several reasons to think that no one would take anything in this column seriously, ever, since it is clearly labeled and habitually takes a sarcastic tone.
Bingo Bulletin Publisher Sharron believes that readers may misunderstand and believe that her publication in fact carried something that was a wholly fictional advertisement. Sharron wants it to be made clear that her publication says only positive, nice things.
Mountain Xpress has no problem setting the record straight here. Our remarks were said in jest and were not intended to reflect negatively on the Bingo Bulletin.
