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

 

"ALL WRITEY!"

MAY 4, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EGRETSNOTREGRETS.COM—ONE YEAR LATER, STILL ‘KILLING A BUNCH OF BIRDS WITH ONE STONE’”

Reliable information–that’s the key [to EgretsNotRegrets.com]. Straight talk. Helpful. Intelligent. To the point. Expertise with environmental documents. Humorous. A surefire formula for your successful blog. I know when I go to Egrets Not Regrets there will be no B.S. Thank you, Heather. And Happy Birthday. / LISA RINALDI

 Keep up the good fight, Heather! Never surrender! / DWR

 Happy birthday to your brainchild, Heather. The quill is mightier than the sword. You dig deep enough to find everything toxic. / KATE K.

MAY 6, “MAYOR FOSTER ABOUT TO ANNOUNCE HIS ENDORSEMENT OF JOHNSON OVER REYES URANGA IN 7TH DISTRICT RACE”

Backbiting Bob has yet to gain his dominance over several on the council. Although he presently has the majority of votes to maintain his iron-fist control, he doesn’t like those who ask too many questions about how the City is being operated. Now with unknown Steve Neal entering the picture he’s worried that his “tower of power” may be beginning to show some cracks. As Tonia [Reyes Uranga], Gerrie [Schipske] and Rae [Gabelich] are currently the only unintimidated, outspoken and questioning councilpersons, Bob will be throwing his money and support to get rid of that pesky Tonia. And Bob is now serving his last term. His failed promises: infrastructure improvement, finances, balanced budgets and 100 new cops. Add increasing homeless, poverty levels, inability to pass Measure I, the loss of the Kroc Center and Tesla Motors—and don’t forget the ongoing embarrassing wetlands fiasco. It makes one wonder just what record will Bob run on when he seeks higher office. / LB MIKE

 Dave, I know it’s your baby, baby, but this story is ridiculously prejudiced. That is to say, you assume it’s all about mayoral power and only about mayoral power. Maybe it’s more than that—maybe it’s also because James [Johnson] would be a better councilmember! Why does James’ salary have anything to do with your story? Do you honestly believe that a Harvard and Berkeley trained attorney couldn’t garner three times that amount in private practice? This isn’t journalism—it’s crap. You’re a bright guy; when will you figure out that sometimes people support others because they believe in them, and not only because it serves an agenda? / MARSHALL

 Jill Hill would have been the best choice, but given the choice between Johnson and Reyes Uranga, it’s Johnson, hands down. Reyes Uranga should respect the term limit law and withdraw. / RW CRUM

 MAY 8, KRISTIN CHALMERS’ “RESOLUTION READING REVIEW: LORRIE MOORE’S ‘A GATE AT THE STAIRS’”

A recommendation from the king of turning his own lemons into lemonade and leaving out the sugar, and this is a surprise? Actually, sounds like a great read—thanks! / KATE K
