A tragic loss for the nation….

I’m in Minneapolis attending the Sound Unseen Film Festival and received tragic news today of the firing of one of the Twin Cities, and the nation’s most respected film journalists, Rob Nelson. A thought occured to me as I realized that The Stranger has been graciously hiring on some well respected national critics who’ve suffered similiar fates including Michael Atkinson, perhaps this was another opportunity for Seattle to help sustain our ever dwindling force of relevant critics across the country. Annie if you’re listening, this is yet another opportunity. I can’t tell you how inportant this man is to helping shape the national film dialogue. It would be an absolute tragedy if he couldn’t continue to write film criticism.
