Don't Fault CPS, Skirting the Issue, Bearing Witness

All sarcasm aside, your report was grossly misdirected. The bottom line is that this officer arrested a woman for DWI. You state that the picture the officer gave was false. The pertinent facts were not questioned.

On top of that, David Kiatta wants to screw up this officer's life. Nowhere, I repeat, nowhere, do you address the guilt or innocence of this woman. Well, I truly hope you never have a loved one killed by a drunk driver, but perhaps that is what it would take to see the real story here. Perhaps then you would have an appreciation of the officers that do the arresting. Perhaps then you would see their testifying in court as a duty, a duty that often inconveniences their lives and the lives of their families.

Spray paint: Gonzo 247 (in cowboy hat) hosts an opening of works by "aerosol artists" in an East End warehouse. Gonzo has been trying to bring graffiti art from the street into the galleries. This was a second opening for the art after the first opening was ruined by an anti-gang task force raid. None of the artists is a gang member.

Editor's note: The story clearly addressed the guilt or innocence of the defendant: The jury that heard the evidence found her not guilty.

Food fights: I'm an avid reader of Cafe articles by Robb Walsh, but something is troubling me about his reporting. In "Bagels Rip My Flesh" [August 16] Robb nearly came to fisticuffs with the restaurant manager for taking notes in his establishment.

In the more recent review of Garson ["For a Good Time, Call…," September 27], Robb has a problem with a restaurant employee hitting on his date. Both reviews took up a significant portion of column space discussing Robb's social interaction with the management and staff, rather than focusing on a more informative review of the menu items served.

I'm well aware that the service and atmosphere have a great deal to do with the overall dinning experience. So I have a suggestion for Robb that may take his mind off these pesky employees so that he can focus on the food: The next time you dine at Garson, go alone and take your notebook. Next time you go to New York Coffee Shop, take Sonia.
