In the Sober Light of Day, Even Brenner Looks Good

RECEIVED Mon., Oct. 15, 2007

Dear Editor,
    In retrospect … in the sober light of day … the Chronicle is not "lazy and/or jerks," and gosh darnit, Wayne Allen Brenner is just a hardworking man trying to make the best with what limited space he is allotted [“Postmarks,” Oct. 12]. That much I realize. For this, I apologize.
    The Chronicle has done several nice things for this overzealous chap in the past several years, which I have not forgotten and am not ungrateful for.
    But the absence of a no "best of stand-up" category in the annual poll does indicate that there are lessons to be learned from this e-mail debacle.
    I've learned my lesson (don't be such a jerk through the Web), but the Chronicle could definitely take a moment or two to realize how great the Austin stand-up scene is, compared to how minimal noise gets made of it in the Chronicle.
    My proverbial hand is outstretched in the most sincere of apologies.
Chuck Watkins
