We were so excited to open our mailbox today and see the lovely and talented Stacy Ferguson on the cover of your “Hot List” issue [RS 1011]. The article was, in a word, risiculous! But why edit the list of featured stories? (The original touted Austin Scagg’s hard-hitting piece on kind bud. We were stoked.) We’re guessing: (A) putting “The World’s Best Pot” next to a recovering drug addict sent the wrong message, or (B) you realized you’re making Austin out to be the staff stoner. Or (C) no one gives a shit about James Bond? Anyway, just wondering! Keep up the good work. And thanks for the piece about music bloggers destroying the bands they love. Now we’re never gonna get promo CDs, lolz!!!
