Jones's Reign of Terror

Dear Reader,

I have lived in Chicago for ten years and have relied upon the Reader the entire time for recommendations on where to spend my money and time. Which is why each week I am horrified to read movie reviews of J.R. Jones. I was burned once very badly by one of his recommendations, and since then I have begun to keep a tally of what he would owe me if I continued to follow his suggestions. It's up to $37 and 393 minutes, and growing each week. Multiply this by your several thousand readers. Please end this reign of terror quickly and find a new reviewer.
