We have the letter in hand now from the coalition led by Citizens for Community Values. If you'd like to read it, click here for a PDF.
The letter is signed by 39 people who are appealing to CityBeat's "integrity as a corporate citizen and ask(ing) that you eliminate the adult services category, and refuse to accept ads elsewhere for sexual sevices, in both your print and online editions."
The letter ends: "Thanks for your consideration of our request and your reply."
Interestingly, there's no return address or telephone number on the letter, so we're not quite sure to whom we're supposed to reply. Maybe all 39 people.
According to a report yesterday on WVXU-FM, the coalition is giving us two weeks to consider its request and to "do the right thing" by eliminating the adult ads. Stay tuned.
