Title

Letter to the Editor "Is a Typical 'Messenger' Necessarily a Total Loss?"

Description

In a letter to the editor, Messenger editor Abdullah Mina questions columnist Edie Graves's criticism of the literary magazine as both a "total loss" and "typical," calling Graves a "would-be intellect" and asserting her column was an aggressive attack on the publication. Graves responds, calling Mina "Abby," by claiming that the failure of the Messenger has been typical of the past few issues and that the publication lacks literary quality. She argues, "I don't see a whole heap of people taking up for the literary value of your publication. Do you?"
