Does Caligiuri Appreciate Only Cookie-Cutter Hacks?

RECEIVED Mon., Jan. 29, 2007

Dear Editor,
    Re: Jim Caligiuri’s review of Mandy Mercier’s Run Out of Darkness from the Jan. 26 Chronicle [“Texas Platters,” Music]: I had to go look at my Mandy Mercier CD to ensure Jim Caligiuri was reviewing the same copy of Run Out of Darkness that I have ... yep he was. Maybe he’s been watching too much American Idol to appreciate heart-and-soul talent over cookie-cutter hacks.
