Dear Reader,

Didn't anybody ever tell you "dog bites man" is the definition of Not News?

Torey Malatia dumping on Victoria Lautman (Culture Club, September 28) is a repeat of dog bites man. He's annihilated local talent and decimated diversity on WBEZ so thoroughly, for so long, that it's not news anymore. The only semi-exception is syndicated fluff like Wait, Wait or cash/prestige cows like Ira Glass.

The closest thing to real news is how long she's escaped the knife. Her being replaced by something syndicatable, designed by a marketing consultant, is business as usual.

Yours,

Neil Rest
