New lifestyle insert does Cambodia a 'disservice'

Dear Editor,

I thought I would write and give feedback on the Post's new 7Days insert (July 31-August 6, 2009).

I was quite disappointed. Much of it contains the kind of Western trash that I was happy to have gotten away from when moving here from the West.
I certainly won't be purchasing it again after reading comments like those from Perle D'Asie, who wrote in the "Sex Talk" column: "...you could spend any reasonable amount of time here and not happen across at least one or two people you find...even downright shaggable".

The Post is doing this beautiful country a real disservice and has ruined its reputation.
