Egregious Oversight

RECEIVED Fri., Dec. 28, 2018

Dear Editor,
    Have you all ever heard of this little music genre called "blues"? Because it's conspicuously absent from your lists in the Dec. 28 issue ["Music Top 10s," Dec. 28]. Seriously? In a city that's home to Antone's, Eric Tessmer, Chris Layton, Ruthie Foster, and Gary Clark Jr. – just to name a few? Where Paul Oscher plays at the Continental Club weekly? This little genre is the foundation for pretty much all other types of music.
    What an egregious oversight.
    If you need a writer to cover the blues, I hereby volunteer my services. Contact me to discuss my qualifications. I will make damn sure the blues isn't overlooked again.
