I’m writing to compliment the excellent writing of Debra Ramage in the June 2021 Powderhorn Edition of your excellent paper (which I’m reading now at the Cardinal Bar). I think Debra is a succinct, thoughtful, and funny writer. I appreciated her profiles of restaurants I have passed many times, but never tried. Her piece encouraged me to get outside my comfort zone and try something new.
I also want to thank her for speaking her thoughts on Surly’s management. I also think the management’s response to the union drive was despicable. However, even if she had stated support of the management, I would still have enjoyed her column. I like to know the politics of the writers I read, even if it means reading things I don’t always agree with. It’s why I appreciate your paper, and the writing you feature. Ramage also, constructively, highlighted a different brewery as an alternative, which I’m excited to try.
Thanks for her column, and your paper. Looking forward to reading it for years to come.
