Your daily Letter to the Columnist — March 11, 2013
Note: The following is from Richard Wells, a downtown landlord who’s also publisher of The Roanoker and other magazines.
After telling and re-telling the story you so eloquently revealed in last Sunday’s paper, I just had to write. That was one of your best, in my opinion.
It made me think about storytelling and your craft as a columnist.
The way you saved the nail in the coffin until the very end was beautiful. Until that moment, the reader was not really sure what was going on in that house. In fact midway through the telling you share with us that the tenant has told you some pretty wild stories about the way this family lived. Stories you just can’t share with your readers . . .
Anyway, Dan I want to compliment you on your writing and the stories you find. It’s good writing and good reading. Thanks.
I think I’ll keep my subscription another year. Can you order an edition that comes without the editorial page?
J. Richard Wells
