WE'VE GOT MAIL... Praise us or pan us, but just put it down in words. Bravos or boos, we want to hear from you
Food & Fashion
Just saw your fashion spread [“Spring Mix,” April 2012] photographed at Hollywood Market in Royal Oak. Photographer Roy Ritchie did a great job. You look good — and we do, too! Thanks for including us. Anytime.

It’s ‘D’ Lovely
[Hour Detroit is] my all-time fave mag from the ‘D’ — every single issue!

Shoots and Scores
Regarding “Under His Wing” [April 2012]: Great article! It really is. Ken Holland [Red Wings general manager] is aces in my book.

Detroit Red Wings, Sarasota, Fla. (via web)
