Re: “This week's Chicagoan: Margie Kruse, court reporter

I had no idea Court Reporters were so fascinating and important and professional. Both my brother and my mother are hard of hearing, so growing up closed captioning was always on. I never knew where they came from.

This is quickly becoming my favorite column in the Reader. Keep it up.

Re: “The Culinary Solution

It seems a little sad to me that so many people automatically say "It sucks. I won’t eat it. I won’t cook it." Cooking is supposed to be about exploration. We should be more adventurous with our food. If there is something wrong with our cultures diet, it’s not just too much of this or too little of that. I think it’s more that we grew culinaraly lazy. We no longer push ourselves.

The parts that filminuit says are not meant to be eaten can be some of the most interesting parts to eat. We used to eat it all--because why waste it if it’s food. Maybe Asian Carp doesn’t have the flavor we normally associate with “good” fish, but that’s a good thing. It does have a flavor we can't get anywere else. Instead of throwing the fish away, let’s find a way to make it taste amazing.

Personally, I can't wait to try my first Asian Carp.

Re: “A Windfall for Light Verse

It is wonderful to read an article about a literary magazine trying to make a go of it in the City. Especially one that's roots are only 1 stop away on the red line. I live off of Argyle and the Green Mill has always called out to me, but I haven't gone yet. This story meant a lot to me because I just started my own literary magazine, New Stone Circle. I've spent 2 years trying to get it off the ground and just last week I picked up our first issue from the printer. This story made me excited, if not a little concerned, for what we will face in the future as a publication.

Re: “The Charcuterie Underground

I'm glad someone finally got the email out there. Buying as soon as I can afford it.

And Pig Bodine, your Saltine story sounds fascinating. When will I hear more?
