Stay Away From the Con
I got my degree at UC, but now I'm back home in Boston working. A friend I made in Cincinnati always sends me Larry Gross' Living Out Loud column linked to e-mails, and the last one about Henry the con artist ("The Problem I Have With Henry," issue of May 21) had me rolling on the floor! Yes, I love going to bars, and I think that's why my friend sends me Gross' stuff.

Anyway, I have a suggestion: It's been more than a few years since a sitcom has been centered around a bar (Cheers!). Why doesn't Gross write a sitcom pilot around Madonna's? So many great characters are there. This has got to be an entertaining place.

I plan on visiting Cincinnati this summer, and one of my first spots will be Madonna's. Stay away from the con!

Stay Away From Bars
You have got to be kidding! Yet another Living Out Loud column about Madonna's the bar? I could care less about the con artist Larry Gross encountered ("The Problem I Have With Henry," issue of May 21).

Here's the problem I have with Gross: He's a talented writer, but he hangs out in bars too much and drinks too much. There's a big wide world out there. Gross should explore it and share it with his readers.
