I will say this, Kris: You were one of the first if not the first to read my little rag, and that thought has kept me honest ever since. Hasn't kept me concise, but honest? Yes.

I know I've benefitted a lot from your criticism, so I'm surely biased, but I do think that you TOC gents have more love for what makes Chicago theater great than any of the other critics in town. That love and excitement transfers to our collective audience, and we've seen the results of it. Shaping thought and focusing opinion in the way that you do is incredibly valuable work for such a small and potentially divisive industry. Rock on.

I think I would agree with Scott Walters about using local talents. I think it is more convenient to do that.

Thanks for sharing!
