Wasn't it Michael York who said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? Maybe not. In any case, I don't know whom to thank for the compliment, since your author neglected to include a byline.

A couple of weeks ago, you ran a photograph of guitarist John Pisano in the jazz section of the Weekly. It shows him playing left-handed, and I thought, "Uh-oh" -- and "It's one of Claxton's." This week, I saw a similar shot of guitarist Nels Cline, and I thought, "Uh-oh" -- and "It's one of mine."

Why do layout artists reverse pictures left to right? We photographers allow you some artistic license, but now you're distorting the facts and messin' with history. This is just irresponsible journalism. I wonder how many homers McGwire would have scored last season had you had him hit from the other side, or how many of Odets' characters would be sitting around waiting for Righty.

Y'all need to quit doing this shit now.
