FUR BETTER OR FUR WORSE

THE STORY “ON THE FRONT LINES OF THE Fur Wars” [Pulse of the City, December] has a vindicating conclusion. On Nov. 21, 1997, the Dallas County Grand Jury returned a “no bill” rinding, and no charges were pressed against our loss prevention manager concerning the fur protest incident on Sept, 27.

It is unfortunate that the unsubstantiated claims of a protester found their way into a publication known for objectivity and accuracy. I hope that in the future, D will take pause before reporting unproven allegations.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Subsequent to the incident report in our December issue, fur protestors Lydia Nichols, John Seeboch, Gina Volpe, and John Goodwin were arrested outside Neiman Marcus and charged with “interfering with the public duties” of Dallas police officers.

SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL SARA PETERSON that the next time she has a stiff neck or back pain [“Finding an End to the Pain,” November], the fastest way to gel help is to see a chiropractor. We are the spinal experts, unless surgery is your only option.

RADIO ROYALTY

IN MIKE SHROPSHIRE’S OTHERWISE EXCEL-lent piece on Randy Galloway’s ascension to the throne as king of the sports talk hosts [“Randy Galloway: King of Sports Radio,” December], Shropshire neglected I to mention that back in the days when Galloway strolled the Ranger beat, he referred to those of us in radio as “talking dogs.”

How wonderful it was to see Galloway emerge from the ink-stained depths of the City Room to put his insight, wit, and sports knowledge on the air and become one of the brethren for whom there are no rewrites and whose first draft must always be the best. Long live the King!
