Dear Chicago Reader folk,

That Scion piece by Liz Armstrong was killer–and not in a good way [Chicago Antisocial, January 28]. “African-American MC”–try emcee or black emcee. Ah, as a writer–a damn good one (a little Kanyestically cocky but more confident)–that piece was the worst. It started off as good prose, then fell off midarticle and ended–I can’t even . . . one shouldn’t have to try so hard–let’s just say that.

I’m a writer/journalist who’s always looking for an opportunity to show-improve. And while I wasn’t going to submit to the Reader–I’m extracompelled to now, so get in contact with me or send word. Because I’m going to start submitting ASAP.

True story,

Danielle Cabell
