Love-Hate Mail 

Letters from our readers.

More Fred bashingJeff Woods wrote a good article on Thompson (“What the Matter With Fred?” Dec. 13). There is a lot the matter with Fred, and just because his mother gave birth to him in Tennessee does not mean that he deserves my vote or the support of other Tennesseans. He had the opportunity to help me when he was in the Senate and he let me down —badly. It was a cruel lesson in how dirty politics can be.

Now it is time for the rest of the country to look closely at what Thompson did and didn’t do when he had the chance, and find a better candidate to vote for next November.NOREEN (Nashville)

Give us GustavoThis is in response to the lady who said that she finds the column “Ask a Mexican” deplorable and so forth (Love/Hate Mail, Dec. 13). Well, I’ve talked to several of my friends in the Hispanic community, and we all agree that the letter writer does not speak for any of us. It seems that she hasn’t yet learned how to laugh at herself. There are many of us who read your rag only because “Ask a Mexican” is a part of it. If it weren’t, then we most likely wouldn’t read any of it, truth be told. We enjoy Gustavo’s crazy way of, er, edumacating the rest of the world about our heritage. We think he is very funny and, once again, want everyone to know that the letter writer doesn’t speak for any of us. We want our Gustavo.JIORJE (Nashville)

Manilow maniaI am writing about an article that Christian Schaeffer wrote (“Cool Yule,” Dec. 13). In the beginning sentence, Mr. Schaeffer wrote, “Forget boy bands and Barry Manilow.” Well, I take offense about forgetting Barry Manilow. If Mr. Schaeffer would look around, Mr. Manilow has a Christmas CD out called In the Swing of Christmas that you can get at any Hallmark store. Oh, he has sold out shows at the Hilton in Las Vegas, a DVD boxed set out, a special on PBS, another special due out in January and is going on a mini tour. Forget Barry Manilow? I don’t think so!DONNA (Nashville)
