Patrick Soon-Shiong as a “pharmaceutical magnet”

And the problem with anonymity

The Garden of Innocence at El Camino Memorial Park: first ritual, handing the caskets around. Holding each pine box from the handles or palming it from the bottom, people pass the pine coffins, bow heads, pause with closed eyes, whisper a prayer.

Kelly Shay Hinze – fifth member of corrupt club?

Un-bared naked names

As a 55-year member of the working press, I’m amazed that a self-described major-newspaper and Associated Press reporter hid behind anonymity to criticize one of your writers (“Writer Harrison skewered on Hinze reporting,” Letters, January 23). Except for staff reports – stories of lesser importance or those compiled from several sources – news stories or letters to the editor bear the name of the writer. A name indicates confidence and pride in what was said. But the Jan. 24 reporter-bashing by the erstwhile journalist and another letter on the same topic by an anonymous physician showed no gutsy commentary. They remain as anonymous as the unnamed source they criticized your reporter for quoting.

Every Tuesday, the Patriot Guard Riders gather at Miramar National Cemetery, home to 12,000 military dead since 2010, for a brief service.

R.I.P

Thank your this most expansive article (“What they do with San Diego’s abandoned babies and homeless dead,” Cover Stories, January 23), it is quite an eye-opener. One hopes that there is a shift in thinking to allow “names” to be recorded for public view. I’ve shared the URL to the article with a few folks in my parish: Our Mother of Confidence (Governor Drive & Regents Rd.) And I’ve shared it with a few of the Patriot Guard Riders. I’ll be posting it onto the SoCal PGR (private) Facebook page. (P.S. The PGR not all old. The young’uns just haven’t retired so they can’t always make a weekday PGR mission.)

Proof positive

In the article on the L.A. Times in your Under the Radar segment from January 17, Patrick Soon-Shiong is referred to as a “pharmaceutical magnet”. Does that mean when he goes to CVS medications fly through the air and stick to him?

Matt's use of the term "magnate" becoming "magnet" could have been due to a spell checker/corrector. If he spelled it correctly except for omitting the final "e", that would surely have been the result. I noticed that typo, but didn't comment on it. Better editing of these blogs, and especially better headline writing, would boost the credibility of Reader articles.
