Kinsley responds to Finke

Michael Kinsley has responded to Nikki Finke’s good-riddance column in a letter to Romenesko. An excerpt:

… Finke peremptorily attaches her own odd views to the entire city of Los Angeles. If the Times or I were to portrayed the citizens of Los Angeles as Finke does in her article — humorless, easily upset, provincial, intolerant (not to mention demagogic and deranged) — Nikki Finke would be the first to throw a fit.

Looking forward to the inevitable Finke response.
