I have been reading the content on your website for the past few weeks. I’ve been perusing the schedules for Blues Traveler and Ron Sexsmith, browsing the cities for Guns N’ Roses and checking out the December dates for Phish. In fact, I’ve spent a good deal of time familiarizing myself with, and it has led me to a startling conclusion.

It appears that the only things you care about are concerts.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I like a fiery John Tesh show as much as the next man. However, when I consider what’s happened in the world over the past few days, It boggles my mind that a website such as yours could ignore some of the biggest news stories of the year. Our country might go to war, but you wouldn’t know it if you were to rely on to keep you up to date on current events. Sure, a user might learn that Pearl Jam is doing a special gig in Seattle, or that The Vines are doing the , but would he or she know about events in Moscow? New York? Washington?

In conclusion, I cannot see how such a bunch of myopic, concert-infatuated writers and editors can dare call themselves journalists when they ignore such late-breaking news stories as the recent sniper arrests, or the Rally Monkey in favor of items about Remy Shand’s Canadian tour or Midnight Oil’s European dates. Heck, they’re not even Americans. They’re foreigners! And they’re not even playing in America! Yet not one mention of the President’s war on terrorism. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

I’m warning you, I’m going to spread the word about you all over the Net that you believe there is nothing more important than a Peter Gabriel schedule or the new dates for Mark Knopfler. The world could blow up beneath our feet and the only thing that would concern this wretched excuse of a media outlet is whether or not the impending apocalypse will delay the next Rolling Stones concert. You people are despicable.
