S. Moser's Column Bewildering

RECEIVED Fri., Nov. 10, 2006

Dear Editor,
    I find Stephen MacMillan Moser's style column bewildering [“After a Fashion,” Arts]. I cannot imagine why he thinks that people want to read 400 words about the ice cream trucks outside his window or his thoughts on health insurance. More importantly, I wonder why he consistently neglects to write about the quality design our community is producing. We have some incredibly talented fashion, jewelry, and furniture designers working in Austin whose work not only deserves to be written about but would be of real interest to your readership. Instead, week after week, we are treated to ramblings on whatever pops into Moser's head or vague references to some party he went to. Austin deserves a column that actually provides insightful commentary on what's stylish about our city. It shouldn't be that hard; this is a pretty happening place.
