The humorless truth

I thought it was a bad joke when I first heard that the Mountain Xpress had terminated its relationship with Cecil Bothwell. In my opinion, the decision makes no sense from a business or readership point of view.

I’ve been in Asheville a little over a year and have come to greatly respect Cecil’s writing talents, candid reporting style and willingness to take a stand. I have always been a fan of the alternative press and found Cecil’s reporting to be consistently the best part of your newspaper.

It has been my pleasure during the past year to get to know Cecil personally, and I continue to be impressed with his intellect, candor and sense of humanity.

What were you guys thinking?
