Letters from Readers: December 2012

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

Not Just Skin Deep

Saving your Skin” [October 2012 Hour Detroit] was excellent, thorough, and accurate. You interviewed an impressive number of dermatologists and the layout was inviting for the reader. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of such a special article.

— Ann Ammond LaFond, M.D., Canton Dermatology and Saint Joseph Mercy Hospital, Ann Arbor

Remembering Jeff Murri

I worked with Jeff Murri at Fox 2 and will always remember him as a caring and involved manager. His energy and laughter were infectious and his vision helped shape Fox 2 into a station committed to helping metro Detroit. I still shake my head thinking about his death [“Inner Pain,” October 2012], as it will never make sense to those who knew and loved him. But I will always hold dear the memories of a man who was not only a boss, but also a friend.

What a tragic story and terrible loss. Thank you, Jim McFarlin, for the care you took in researching and writing [“Inner Pain,” October 2012] and for including the warning signs.

An engaging profile [“Inner Pain,” October 2012] of a man on top of the world, beloved and recognized, everything for which you strive — and yet, no one realized he needed their help.

Zingerman’s Zest

Great article [“Retro Recipe,” October 2012]. I can smell the food from East Lansing. The only shortcoming of the [review of Zingerman’s Roadhouse] seems to be no mention of sweet-potato fries with spicy mayo. A bowl of soup supported by sweet-potato fries will leave no doubt you have had a meal.

Docs’ Delight

Congratulations to the WSUPG doctors that made this year’s Hour Detroit Top Docs list [October 2012]. We’re proud to have had 65 of our physicians receive this honor.
