FUR IS FLYING

I loved the way (writer Josie) Schneider took us through the history of fur, beginning with Louis XIV (“A Passion for Pelts,” September 2014)! The local connection gave me a side of Detroit I knew little about.
— Nancy Seligmann, Chelsea, via Facebook

 

// The story about fur contained false and misleading information. It takes more than 15 times the energy to produce a farmed fur coat than a synthetic fur coat. And fur is treated with a soup of toxic chemicals … known to end up in nearby soil and water supplies. Contrary to what Schneider wrote, there is nothing even remotely “green” about real fur.
— Jessica Johnson, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Washington, D.C.

 

IT TAKES A VILLAGE 

What is not mentioned here (“The Art of Restoration,” September 2014) is the love the community has for Artist Village. I see it every day in the eyes of the kids that use the village (and) in the young adults that help clean up the neighborhood during the week. I see it every Saturday morning when volunteer groups come from around the country and nearby communities to help.
— Gordon Soderberg, Motor City Blight Busters, via Facebook

 

TOUTING TANNAHILL

Your research showed truly great investigation of Bob Tannahill’s life and cultural accomplishments  (“Portrait of a Collector,” September 2014). I am honored to be one of the trustees of the Tannahill Foundation and help to oversee continuation of his generous endowment at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
— Joseph L. Hudson Jr.

 

MISSED OPPORTUNITIES 

Hey, they must have missed me somehow (“Best Dressed,” September 2014).
— Sue Greenwald Bidigare, via Facebook

 

// I think I just missed the cut … there’s always next year.
—Josh Keilman, via Facebook

 

HOT TOPIC

Great article (“Standing the Heat,” August 2014)! Please write about up-and-coming women chefs!
— Mary Kate Scala Ben-Ami, via Facebook

 

CORRECTION

The quote highlighted on page 106 in our October 2014 story on Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine should have been attributed to Florence Doo.
