Apparently AOL has, for some unexplained (probably technical) reason, shut down a longtime beloved arts newsletter, “Not Only Brooklyn,” that local guy Neil Feldman writes for free twice weekly and sends to about 3,000 readers. So many people are coming undone that Feldman got Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz to call AOL on his behalf. According to Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn, Markowitz’s office “responded swiftly to Feldman’s call for assistance” and left several messages at AOL but did not receive a response. That is just wrong. Everyone knows, when Marty’s people call you, you take the damn call. [Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn via Gowanus Lounge]
