Brett Anderson’s review of Toro Tapas (Young & Hungry, 12/18) takes gratuitous shots at just about everybody: public dieters, sangria bingers, blowbags, Northern Virginia in general, etc.

Perhaps he should have ordered the crow. If he really understood Spain, he’d have noticed that Jonathan Carlson’s accompanying sketch missed by a mile. Never in my 35 years of attending bullfights on three continents have I ever seen a toro bravo with a ring in its nose. The ring is used on draft animals such as castrated steers, not fighting bulls.
