Still Seeking a Higher Grade

October 01, 2000

When I was in college, a crusty, curmudgeonly political science professor wrote on my midterm essay, "Excellent!" And then he gave me a "B." I appealed that grade, arguing that "excellent" merits an "A"--not a "B"--and he actually changed the grade.

Reading S. Irene Virbila's restaurant reviews reminds me of that long-ago "B." Her review of the new Restaurant Katsu in Studio City ("The Shakespeare of Sushi," Sept. 3) is filled with praise, yet she only rates it two stars. What the hell does it take to get an "A" from your crusty, curmudgeonly critic?
