Re: Let ‘Girls’ into UI

“Insufferable and pathetic …” A perfect description of Hannah and the show itself. The Iowa Writers’ Workshop has an international reputation. On the other hand, filming in Iowa City may give the show the diversity it sorely lacks. HBO needs Iowa City, not the other way around.

I’m curious how many times writers from the Workshop use Iowa City as a setting and how often the UI turns down requests to shoot here. I suspect this has come up on more than a few occasions.

Re: UI students drive up local rents

Rents aren't the only problem. How about the fact that many students have to choose to re-up their leases for the following year fewer than five months into their current leases? I remember one year getting a letter in November saying if I wanted to renew my lease for the following August, I had to re-sign by mid-December. I, mistakenly, thought it was a joke. Only in Iowa City.

Re: Free to fly away

If it truly is about the money, perhaps these 18-year old talents should simply go to Spain and play for pay instead of one year playing for “free.” Oh wait, I know why they don’t — because the NCAA and the school get the kids better exposure. I think you should jump to the paying world of journalism. I can't believe all the ads on your web page. I presume paid ads. You [at the DI] are being exploited. Time to jump to the Press-Citizen, Gazette, Register, or Chicago Tribune.
