Re: “Jane Austen-in-Singapore 'Crazy Rich Asians' Fizzles

But the novel wasn't a "Jane Austen-style comedy of manners," so why should the film be one? The trilogy by Kevin Kwan has no character development and no lofty "ideas." The novels are pure entertainment -- as is the film.

Why expect something else from a film when you're not familiar with the original books -- except to say that they "seem to have the word 'rich' in their titles"? You've written a film review with absolutely no context and no clue.

Re: “Alameda County Officials Say Repealing Affordable Care Act Would Be ‘Devastating’

If the Express is going to continue to commission and print articles by authors who are not identified in its masthead, don't we deserve to know who those writers are? I see that Alice Feller is an MD and psychiatrist practicing in Berkeley. This is really useful information to have in appreciating her reports on the state of healthcare.

Likewise, who are Matt Davis and Teresa Foglia, who often write for the Express on urban issues? They too aren't in your staff list.

Using freelancers is fine. Not identifying their expertise and affiliations is a disservice to both them and your readers.
