Letters to the Editor

From the week of March 14, 2002

The truth will set you free: In Michael Roberts's "Going Public," the part on Colorado Public Radio's bid for radio station KUNC misstated that Thomas Sutherland was "a former captive in Iran." Thomas Sutherland was held captive in Lebanon, then taken and released in Beirut by the Iranian-backed Hezbollah. The damages he was awarded were from monies the U.S. government seized from Iran.

Soggy Mountain breakdown: Thank you for David Hill's great article on Dan Tyminski and the O Brother, Where Art Thou? phenomenon ("Union Man," February 7). My husband and I have been fans of Alison Krauss and Union Station for several years, and we've enjoyed their music as well as the music on the O Brother and Down From the Mountain soundtracks.

Please forgive one small correction: The band in the O Brother movie was the Soggy Bottom Boys, not the Soggy Mountain Boys.
