Tell All: Men in Madison leave something to be desired

Dear Tell All: I recoil from grad students and I'm not into biker silks. And sorry, seven hours of Grand Theft Auto per day is a deal-breaker. Can't fix a martini? Fine. But how about a faucet? I love Madison, but the Y chromosomes here are leaving something to be desired. What does a bachelorette have to do in this town? >More
 Tell All: Making bicyclists pay

Dear Tell All: Like previous letter writers, I am bothered by the crass disregard for traffic rules practiced with impunity by so many Madison bicyclists. >More
 Tell All: Dry humping is not dancing

Dear Tell All: You disagreed with a parent who was scandalized by dancing at a local high school, but I don't know if you've actually seen what goes on at dances here in Madison in 2014. You point out how scandalous the twist or tango were for their time and say that the current behavior is no different. >More
 Tell All: I'm dating a 12-year-old

Dear Tell All: A few months ago I met a guy through a dating website and have been seeing him regularly. We have many things in common, are physically attracted to each other, and get along well in person. The problem comes when we communicate via texting or Facebook. >More
 Tell All: Teen dances go too far

Dear Tell All: I recently chaperoned at my son's high school dance and was shocked by some of the moves I saw. It wasn't so much dancing as kids having sex standing up with their clothes on. I didn't know how far I could go in my role as chaperone, so I didn't stop it, but in retrospect I wish I'd spoken up. >More
 Tell All: Bad Madison bicyclists

Dear Tell All: I was at Woodman's today and was surprised to see my letter about Madison bicyclists got printed, along with your response doubting my claims. Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't lie about anything. >More
 Tell All: My friend, the homophobe

Dear Tell All: I'm mad at a straight friend of mine for sticking up for the homophobes associated with that Arizona anti-gay law that just got shot down. He's against the law itself, which would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gay people based on their "religious beliefs." But we had a philosophical disagreement that blew up into a serious fight. >More
 Tell All: Madison bicyclists are 'vermin'

Dear Tell All: I have read the letters from your readers about bad driving in Madison. However, no one up to now has revealed the worst offenders of all. In Madison, they are viewed as "the chosen people." To me, they are just bicyclists. >More
 Tell All: 'I know Woody Allen did it'

Dear Tell All: I am outraged by your response to "A Chauvinist Pig, Apparently," who believes Woody Allen did not sexually abuse his daughter Dylan. You said that "Allen was never charged with a crime, much less convicted, so he deserves the presumption of innocence." >More
 Tell All: How much should employers expect from job applicants?

Dear Tell All: In your response to Jobless in Madison, you solicited reader opinions on the practice of employers asking applicants to do a working stint as part of a job interview. I would consider such an "interview" reasonable if it ran for an hour or two. >More
