Paragraph failed to serve real purpose

Published: Thursday, April 10, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

Seriously? Was the last paragraph in the April 2 article, “‘Special event venue’ nears debut,” really necessary? What purpose did it serve?

It certainly wasn’t there to support the topic – a new entertainment option [Dixon Stage Left] for Dixon. I felt it detracted from the article even more than the use of the word “venue” nine times.

Note to readers: The paragraph in question referred to a December misdemeanor charge brought against the artistic director of Dixon Stage Left.
