I've read one too many letters to the editor from people like Jane "No Fun" Crider.
These people criticize the Calendar for not being just the way they want it. I am sure that there are many of us who haven't complained about the opera, stage and dance reviews just because we don't read them (or like them). I flip past them, realizing that other people enjoy them and wouldn't denounce The Times as a cheesy rag for printing them.
As for what I like about Calendar, well, I am one of those who sometimes looks specifically for box-office and TV ratings. I look forward to reading "the inside stuff" in Hollywood. My favorite part is the "rock artist-Hilburn-Michael Jackson . . . garbage" and reader responses.
I would hate to lose this sort of entertainment just because the Criders of this world don't like it.
