The recent shooting of a Jimmy John's employee who was attempting to deliver a sandwich in Riverwest is a devastating tragedy. The horrendous situation, however, brings up a smaller issue: Is it OK for restaurants to "black line" their delivery maps, and refuse to deliver in neighborhoods with a history of violent crime? Many citizens -- including those who live in Riverwest, Walker's Point, Brewer's Hill and Harambee -- struggled to find restaurants that were willing to deliver before the Riverwest shooting, and now they may have a harder time trying to get door-delivered food. Is this fair?

Last week's question: What's your favorite Milwaukee arts group?

I have season tickets to The Rep and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. I am from the East Coast and have seen a lot of New York theater, but I am always, always impressed with the talent at The Rep.
Jane Ford

The Milwaukee Ballet! My family and I attend "The Nutcracker" every year.
Corrine Clarke

I was a huge fan of Theatre X and will always hold it near and dear to my heart. Some of their stuff was way too out there for me, but I appreciated their avant garde style. There's never been and never will be anything quite like it.
Deborah Smith
