Ever notice that the writer of this column only chooses to interview the most non-threatening looking white people? Anyone who does not live in this town who reads style scout would assume that Lawrence consists only of preppy frat clones and suburban fauxhemian hipsters.

And Huckleberry Finn? Anyone who admits to liking television garbage like the Bad Girls Club has probably never even read Mark Twain, let alone read a book.

You do understand this is an oral interview and any spelling or grammar errors are due to the interviewer, right? Sounds like Bad Girls Club really struck a nerve with someone for some reason....

When did all the negative aholes migrate over to lawrence.com from the ljworld.com forums? @dslawrence: Do something productive with your time. Learn to knit. Take up a paper route. Kick your own a. Do SOMETHING that doesn't involve spewing negativity anonymously on forums. Thanks.

@dslawrence-Also, this girl is beautiful. She has poured me a cup of coffee numerous times. I have to say she is one of the nicest people in this town. You could get away with watching any crap show on television you like if you treat people the way she does. You however, are an embarrassment to this site, this town, and this planet. maybe you should get your nose out of Huckleberry FINN and off these forums and figure out how to not be a douche.

agreed inandaroundtown. She's my fav barista at The Pig, never disappoints and you're right she treats people well and that matters a lot more than what you watch on television.

I agree. Jen is my favorite barista anywhere. A very classy lady. And truly classy ladies can watch whatever they want on television.
