Letter Rip

We love letters. Maybe it's because our grandmas always used to tape a quarter to our birthday cards when we were little, and we now have this Pavlovian thing going on. Regardless, we want to hear from you. Sing our praises, bust our chops, or just tell us what's on your mind. Send it to editor@americanwaymag.com.

For years, I have been referred to as a road warrior, though my travels are not of the exotic kind I have read about in your annual Road Warrior contest. I don't fly to far-off countries for work. I don't rescue children or animals. I simply get on American Airlines flights to visit business associates, family, and friends.

I want to thank American Way for providing me with wonderful reading over the years. I thoroughly enjoy the celebrity city tours. I took a recent flight to Portland, Oregon, and as I opened my American Way, there was the article "The Dish on Portland Shopping" [UpFront, August 1]. On that trip, I was fortunate enough to have some free time, and I took full advantage of your great suggestions for shopping in the Pearl District, as well as in the shops on NW 23rd Avenue. Great suggestions!
