The Mysteries of '31 Nights'

RECEIVED Mon., Sept. 13, 2004

Dear Editor:
   As someone who plans on relocating to Austin from the Southeast within the next six months, I found your paper to be very good and generally informative, with the following exceptions in the article "31 Nights" by Darcie Stevens [Music, Sept. 10]. Not being "from 'round here" I found the article both ambiguous, poorly written, and very provincial (i.e., What river dried up? Does Austin have a great music scene? Did this person have a good time or not?). So perhaps you can understand my confusion and hopefully clarify. You mentioned in your editor's note, "wasted young lady." I'm not certain how this was meant, but personally I think "being wasted" is fine as long as one isn't driving a car, flying a plane, or trying to write an informative and hopefully entertaining article, am I clear?
