Dear Emily Post-Avant,

I just saw the photograph of the Paris Review Spring Revel and your commentary about it. I like Dispatches from the Poetry Wars, but I really think you should tell the editors that they went a little too far this time. I mean, isn’t it a bit much to accuse a whole journal of being racist for running a simple photograph that shows a bunch of writers having a good time?
