Re: “Recap: Jack O and the Tennessee Tearjerkers

I like the show reviews, keep them coming. This blog in general is great, too, by the way.

Thanks for your replies. The Flyer is great, keep up the good work.

Re: “MGMT Wins Settlement From French President Sarkozy's UMP Party

I think MGMT is great, and I'm glad the Flyer covers them. I saw them the last time they played Memphis and plan to go again in June.

But I didn't think including disclaimers "most of the time" was the applicable standard. Nor did I think the standards for web publishing were less stringent than those governing the print version. I counted at least 7 times in the web version this has happened. Mr. Herrington makes a point to do it right. Others haven't, or at least they haven't on a consistent basis. "Former Memphian" doesn't cut it when it's your boss's son you're writing about, does it? The Flyer does a great job of holding the CA's feet to the fire on such issues, but this kind of practice undercuts your credibility.

Re: “MGMT Wins Settlement From French President Sarkozy's UMP Party

Can you please stop this practice of covering Mr. VanWyngarden's band without a disclaimer regarding his relationship to your editor? A search of the archives indicates that this has happened on several occasions. Pretty sad, really. If I had a paper I might want to report on my son, too, but I would make sure to do it the right way.
