No Use

Let me add my name to the group of readers who are disappointed at the disappearance of Straight From the Hip. I would read this column regularly and, although I found the smart-alecky tone sometimes annoying, I learned quite a few interesting things about the city we live in, which I would have no way of learning otherwise.

I never read art reviews, and I only occasionally dip into restaurant reviews, which are usually too self-consciously cute, hip, or avant-guard to be of any use. Who can afford to eat out in restaurants anyway these days?

Expand East

Great article on the aerotropolis plan for Gillespie Field (Neighborhood News).

I am a native San Diegan and local East County resident. I would love to hear more about this issue. Perhaps you could give us readers a weekly update — or better yet, a more in-depth story. It seems that there is more to it than just aviation.

I am crossing my fingers for a Charger Stadium with an entertainment complex. It is about time we expand east. I think it would greatly benefit the economy, thus the community. I would also like to add that it is wonderful seeing people stand up for what they believe in. Cheers, Germann!

Lack of Coverage

I’m concerned about the lack of coverage in South Bay. I haven’t seen Susan Luzzaro’s byline in a couple of weeks and I’m concerned that we’re no longer of interest. There’s a lot of crap going on down here, especially with the school district. I’m hoping to see some renewed coverage of what’s important to us down here.

Ode to M.A.

Let’s all shed a tear, and then raise a chalice.

We’ll all surely miss the late Mathew Alice,

who cleverly wrote Straight From the Hip,

filled with awesome facts, and often a quip.

A column with wry humor, but never with malice!

History Ticker

I noticed that your News Ticker and Neighborhood News items are always a week old or more. Your July 18 issue has “news” dated July 8. Really? How do you figure?

Instead, you should call it “History,” or “In Case You Live Under a Rock and Didn’t Hear About This Already.”
