I just read the Mary J. Blige and Jaheim piece by Robbie Mackey (Music Spotlight, Aug. 2) and felt a little humbled. It was extraordinarily well-written. Clever, without making us aware of the writer trying to be clever (I see too much of that every day). And informative. And it had the concert peg without reading like a run-of-the-mill concert preview. I’m sending this story to my journalist friends.
