Too bad we're losing columnists Vic Leipzig and Lou Murray — and especially their fascinating accounts of cruelty-free egg farming. We need more such positive info on eco-friendly alternatives (rather than just nagging and laws telling us what...
Is Drew Kovacs a wannabe Tim Geddes? His letter ("Tim Geddes for City Council?" Mailbag, Sept. 6) would suggest that his envious carping might conceal some personal agenda of his own. I personally don't have one, but if sticking up for the community or...
