Annual Manual rocks!

As a sometime contributor and avid reader of the Hook, I'm strongly compelled to sing the praise of your most recent Annual Manual [August 5, 2004].

Other local rags have attempted it, but none have come close to giving the real lowdown.

Additionally as a local minor-league litterateur, I found the writing clever, witty, and refreshingly unpretentious such that I've stocked up on additional copies for folks who'll be visiting the area soon.

Cheers for a job well done!
