What a bunch of spoiled brat crap. I only wished my grandparents lived longer than my 15 years — so much you can learn from them about yourself. You can really develop a sense of history of who you are by reaching out to your family and asking questions. But of course this little girl thinks she already knows it all. The least she could have done is reached out to her mother. Her generation is so thoughtless. If she is not getting professional help, she should.
Date Of The Dead
The opening line in this story (“Crasher,” February 5) states that this past December 8 would have been Jim Morrision’s 60th birthday. This is incorrect. December 8, 2008, would have been his 65th birthday.
Here is a link to his gravesite which states this to be so (findagrave.com/ cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page= gr&GRid=740). Any fan of the Doors should know this!
Thirst And A Good Vibe
I’m one of the main doormen at Patrick’s, and your comic strip was way out of line (“Overheard in San Diego,” February 5). Your depicting a drunk gentleman on our patio putting his finger into a pedestrian’s belly and judging him on his North Park looks, that would never happen at our bar, and if it did, they would be asked to leave. I took offense to the second bar depicting this fictitious character escorting the guy out on his North Park looks. I looked into Cathryn Beeks Ordeal’s MySpace page to find out she is a musician and probably has an agenda against Patrick’s booking, but as far as how we treat anyone, and I mean anyone, come on down with a good vibe and a thirst for some cheap drinks and some good blues, and you will see how we treat you, like family.
Man…I know times are tough but it’s writers like Ollie that make it just a little better for all of us. His weekly article (“Remote Control King”) always makes me laugh and brings me back to the Reader website each week. I seriously haven’t missed a column since he started. Please bring his column back! Begging.
