Ms. Bartholo,

Thanks so much for the compliments. Your response -- and the response of, at
this point, close to 200 other fans -- tells me that I was basically on the
mark with that column, that A's fans were insulted by both the pricing and
Schott's reaction to the criticism. I notice the Trib has ripped Schott
twice in the last two days, and the Contra Costa Times weighed in on him
too. It seems unanimous, but I wonder if he's really paying attention to the
damage he's done.

I peeked at the message board the day I wrote the column, and there was
outrage about the original comments in Susan's story, so this basically
confirms the feelings by the fans. Keep up the good work on your end, and
I'll take up the banner when it's appropriate. Schott made it easy for me
and his critics.

Thanks again,
David Steele, Chronicle
