Snarky Candiru2

The end of Coffee Talk as we know it.

As you may already know, the "Elly's Coffee Talk" feature on the FBorFW.com homepage is about to change format. Instead of the daily letter column that used to exist, it will now be a "letter of the Week" column in which Lynn chooses her favorite letter from the pile and gives the lucky writer a personal response. The wording of the posts suggests that now that Lynn has started to review the letters herself, she got bored reading endless variations on the theme "Lynn-you-have-a-camera-in-my-house" and angered by the much greater ratio of criticism to praise. Not only does this save her a lot of work, it also allows her to maintain the illusion that most people aren't vaguely dissatisfied with the new format. It, after all, seems that the letter that strokes her ego the most will be the one chosen.
