I've read some biased reviews, but Justin Hayford's review of the play Nickel and Dimed is a piece of work ["Poor Choices," November 14]. He obviously had a few strong feelings about the book before seeing the play. Next time there's a pro-choice rally in town, are you going to send a pro-lifer to cover it? Next time you want to run a sports feature on the Bears are you going to assign a die-hard Packer fan to write it? Only Fox News would admire your fair and balanced review.
