My favorite part of Sunday's pinkie is "Ask Mick Lasalle." It's nothing splashy nor invigorating and that's what makes it so good.
In fact, it's rather mundane: a simple collection of questions LaSalle answers from readers. Often, the questions are rather ordinary but display a unique blend of subject matter mostly movie-driven, but LaSalle has a rather charming manner in the way he answers each question. Sometimes fairly pithy, other times just basic and to the point. "Ask Mick" has become a very popular feature in the Pink to the degree that it was a recent cover story. Its charm and popularity is due in large part to its simplicity. In today's print-deprived world, that, in and of itself, is special.
