Letters to the Portland editor: August 25, 2006

Artspace and Paris Hilton

Finding new space
I really enjoyed reading your informative article in the Phoenix. We have just relocated our business from Portland to Biddeford and are super excited about our new, bigger, and much-improved space. As we are a small textile mill that makes niche hand knitting yarns, it is especially fun for us to be relocating into a building purpose-built for our operations. I learned quite a bit from your article and appreciate the coverage of the renaissance of the old mill towns.

Skipping Paris
In regards to your August 18 cover story — “America’s Next Musical Genius,” featuring Paris Hilton — I have one question: how much did Shannon Steel (sic) get paid to write that miserable dreck called an article? I ask, because I will gladly — for half the cost! — write your next cover story, and it will completely and totally be devoted to Portland’s art and entertainment scene. So let me know!
