From the mailbag: "I've been writing for the Voice off and on for five years, and I can say that [editor] Tony [Ortega] is the first editor-in-chief who personally responds to pitches. I think his rejection of what sounds like a totally unoriginal idea for a column (don't we have enough dating/relationship/sex columns for crissake?) is measured and honest. He responds to my pitches the same way, and I appreciate it. At least he takes the time to write back!"
