Hi everyone,

Here’s the review I wrote of the Long Beach Symphony’s 79th season opener over the weekend. The link is free:

Review: Long Beach Symphony opens 79th season.  Orange County Register, Oct. 6, 2013.

So far, the only reaction I’ve gotten is this:

“Just read your review of Maestro Diemecke´s concert in Long Beach.

You are a typical third class review writer. When someone has absolutely nothing to say, he comes out with absolutely ridiculous and uneducated opinions. The concert was great! And you Mr.Mangan are an idiot.

An advice: Less reviews but with better content and class.

Otherwise, you will ruin your reputation fast enough.”

See what you think. How do you think I should respond? How would you respond?
