Poll: If I Were You

Since Troy Johnson's departure from CityBeat, the "If I Were You" column has been passed around to several freelancers and staff writers. Many people have commented to me about the state of the column of late. A few people have asked me why I don't do it. The truth is, it's a very hard column to write and I just don't have the time, and I think there are people who can do a better job than I ever could. I'm not suggesting I have any say or even that it's been offered to me, but with a new editor at the weekly, my recommendation is that if you have an opinion about the direction of the music section of the paper, then you should write an email or letter to the editor and give your opinion and help shape the direction the paper takes. You have a voice and CityBeat prides itself on listening.

In the meantime, I've added an opinion poll on the right hand side of this site just for the fun of it. Let me know who you think should be doing the column.

So far, I like Dryw because he includes a larger range of musical types in his writing. Johnson's commentary on rockabilly rarely if ever rose above the snide comment level.
