ALL WRITEY!! A SAMPLING OF YOUR COMMENTS/CRITICISMS/LOVE NOTES/WITTICISMS

A selection of snippets and full-on blasts from the feedback received from readers this week:

 MARCH 30, “MARCHESE ACCUSED OF TRYING TO GET NON-PROFIT WETLAND GROUP’S MAILING LIST FOR HIS CITY COUNCIL CAMPAIGN”

 The timing of Don May’s well-orchestrated letter, and the past and current actions of the LCWLT Board, should cause people to wonder whether this is a political attempt to benefit the election chances of the incumbent Councilperson by discrediting one of his political opponents. / MIKE RUEHLE

 The sad thing is that the LCWLT needs to be a thriving, expanding, activist kick-butt organization to get the best results. Aggressively doing what must be done requires people who are willing to mix it up at times, people like Tom [Marchese] and Mike [Ruehle], who have their hearts in the right place. That really matters. But they get the bum’s rush? With their disgusting petty manipulations some connected with the LCWLT are doing nothing but hurting the cause. Could the LCWLT have been infiltrated by the opposition? Anyone there a member of the chamber of commerce union? / WRONGBEACHJOHN

Congratulations, Janice Dahl. Well done. / ANDY KINCAID

 MARCH 30, “RESOLUTION READING REVIEW: ‘HER FEARFUL SYMMETRY’ / KRISTIN CHALMERS

 Don Quixote is one of my very favorite books I am shocked by your comments regarding it! LOL! / LB CITYGIRL

 Hi Kristin, that’s a great resolution! I’m looking forward to reading your next offering. You write well, and I especially appreciate your humor. / HEATHER ALTMAN

 APRIL 1, “REDISTRICTED! 101: EXPLAINING THIS SITE’S ACCOUNT OF MARCHESE’S LOSS IN LCWLT ELECTION”

 Back off Dave, I posed the issue as a question, not an accusation as you are now claiming, “Are you writing objective articles or just using people and ruining reputations to get attention?” The story could have been spun many ways, including one that was fair to Marchese and the LCWLT. One way could of been to look at the way the LCWLT acted and evaluate if their own actions could be construed as political and impacting the outcome of an election. To say that you have a point of view does not forgive my point that Marchese reputation was harmed because of accusations of what he might do. If you use this as your journalistic standard, where does this leave any person trying to improve their community? Please reflect on this or I am going to have to go back to reading the press releases in the Grunion Gazette. / JANIS POPULI

 Everyone wants to see sacred cows skewered, except their own. Keep it up. / HOWARD X.

 Keep up the good work. The truth is that Mar-Crazy was using his affiliation with the LCWLT as a platform for his candidacy and it is worth reporting that he lost by a landslide. This tells me that the vast majority of the people are not buying what he is selling. Don’t be bothered by the people that will put blinders on and not accept the reality of the situation; you’re doing a fine job and I am pleased to be able to read your writings. / MICHAEL GOBEL

 To Michael Gobel: The candidate’s name is Tom Marchese—not Tom Mar-Crazy; that is offensive. How would you like me to address you as Michael Go-balls? Hmmm? Long before Tom served on the LCWLT board he has been our watchdog for the wetlands–talk about the last 15 years!! Dave is well aware of all of Tom’s unpaid work now and in the past. Frankly, I wish Tom had never sought a place on the LCWLT board. He is too independent far too smart for them—so resentment sets in. Go Tom! / LAURA

 Dave Wielenga, Thank you for your reporting. Regards. / NOEL PROFFITT

 APRIL 1, “OWNER OF FOMER COMPTON POT SHOP GETS SIX YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON,” By Allison Jean Eaton/Compton Bulletin

I think we’ll find that this is the case with many such places in Long Beach as well…for-profit drug dealing in the guise of legitimate medical marijuana cooperatives. Hopefully the new Long Beach ordinance will help to curb some of that and better serve legitimate patients while preventing the profit taking by drug dealers operating openly in and near our neighborhoods. / JOHN B. GREET

 These collectives are drug dens and need to be shut down immediately. How dare these drug dealers take over our beloved city and destroy our children’s lives. We will vote out any City Official that promotes illegal drug use. Under federal law, marijuana is ILLEGAL! / TONY LB

 APRIL 2, “ARTHUR J. PAUL DIED OF A WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF, BUT THE LIST DID NOT INCLUDE REGRET”

 AJP was a very good man; my wife and I had the privilege of meeting him, since he did out construction on our home. My wife had the privilege of talking to him about where his eternal destiny would be if and when he would pass on; he had accepted Jesus Christ as his savior, so it leaves no question where he is at. He is smiling at us right now, since he is with our Savior. / JESSE

 Way to miss the point, Jesse. Beautiful piece, Dave. / JULIE

 R.I.P. Arthur was my neighbor, but I found out he passed away through this blog. Nice eulogy. Thanks. I will miss talking and seeing him. / STEVE
