To whom it may concern,

I am writing on behalf of honesty, integrity, and the enduring fight against media bias. As I'm sure you know, Woody Allen has a new film coming out entitled Melinda and Melinda. Your critic Jonathan Rosenbaum has consistently slammed Allen's work without cause. His judgment is blinded by an unreasoned hatred of Allen as a person. It is time to separate the artist from the art. We humbly ask that the Chicago Reader assign another critic to review Allen's film.

Jonathan Rosenbaum replies:

You're too late--my review's in this issue. But I've never met Woody Allen and have absolutely nothing against him personally.
