'Chronicle' Critics Shouldn't Criticize

RECEIVED Tue., April 24, 2007

Dear Editor,
    Well well well … another issue of the Chronicle, another mean-spirited review from the Cabinet of Dr. Jim Caligiuri [David Newbould, Big Red Sun, “Texas Platters,” Music, April 20]! Imagine that! I thought the Chronicle was here to support and nurture the local music scene. If so, what is the purpose of Jim Caliguri? He is obviously a frustrated musician who wants to get even for his own shortcomings by taking shots at people with more talent than he could ever hope for. What's the matter Jim Caligiuri, couldn't get the Drive-by Truckers to sign your Hondo III Les Paul copy? You know, the one you hold in front of the mirror while you lip-synch to your old Kiss records? You must be pretty fond of yourself.
