Dear Chicago Reader folk,

That Scion piece by Liz Armstrong was killer--and not in a good way [Chicago Antisocial, January 28]. "African-American MC"--try emcee or black emcee. Ah, as a writer--a damn good one (a little Kanyestically cocky but more confident)--that piece was the worst. It started off as good prose, then fell off midarticle and ended--I can't even . . . one shouldn't have to try so hard--let's just say that.

I'm a writer/journalist who's always looking for an opportunity to show-improve. And while I wasn't going to submit to the Reader--I'm extracompelled to now, so get in contact with me or send word. Because I'm going to start submitting ASAP.

True story,

Danielle Cabell
