At first, I was marginally bummed by your write-up on the Sorts (City Lights, 5/3). My beef was that I thought the City Lights page was for highlighting/recommending upcoming arts events.

But you made some very solid points. And maybe you simply used the space to say what’s obviously on a lot of people’s minds. In fact, the Sorts have been feeling a vague sense of failure at our experiment for some time. Now it seems the writing’s on the wall, as it were (or at least in the Washington City Paper).

But seriously, you’re right. I think my bandmates and I will indeed pack it in. Thanks for the heads-up.
