Willis Way fans respond

Shelly Dunn was not dropped from DSC

“Congratulations, guys! I knew we’d win! Uh, guys? Ed? Andrea?”
“Congratulations, guys! I knew we’d win! Uh, guys? Ed? Andrea?”

Affective disorder

Yeah, this concerns the July 11 Reader, San Diego on the QT, page 14 (“Motion underway to re-try exonerated Edward Gallagher following Duncan Hunter’s statement of support,” San Diego on the QT, July 12). The middle paragraph there, or the second paragraph, I guess, you have a sentence there [containing] “adversely affects,” and then in brackets “sic”, “the morale of our war fighters.” Well, I’ve got news for you. That is the right usage of the word affect. For godsakes, I mean I get so fed up with people always writing “impact” because they don’t know the difference between “affect” and “effect” and in this case somebody uses “affect” properly and some lame brain on your staff puts a “sic” after it in brackets. That is the correct use of the word “affect” for godsake. I mean what kind of assholes are you, and you know the same kinda idiots that say “gender” instead of “sex” say “impact” because they don’t know the difference between “affect” and “effect.” Well this is “affect” used properly, and some lame brain on your staff puts “sic” after it in brackets. “Adversely affects the morale.” Yes it’s a bad “effect” on morale, but it adversely “affects” morale. What kind of assholes do you have editing your stuff for godsakes.

DSC (Dave Rickards, Shelly Dunn and Cookie Chainsaw Randolph)

Permanent vacation

I would like to clarify that I retired from The DSC show, I was not “dropped” (“Mikey now gone from KFMB’s 100.7,” News Ticker, July 16). They kept the name DSC because the brand is so well known. I continue to listen in on the rare mornings that I am awake that early and they sound as if they are having as much fun as I did back in my day!!! I will close here as my margarita is getting warm and the pool is calling my name!

Atonement is a process (“The Willis way to survive rip currents,” City Lights, July 17). I am grateful to be a member of a community and country that provides second chances, rip currents do not!!! Blessings and respect peace always.

Rip Current article right on! The Willis brothers are the real deal. I grew up on the North Shore, have surfed with the world’s best, at the top are the Willis brothers. Ironically just after reading about surviving rip currents I heard on the news 15 children had to be rescued from rip currents at La Jolla Shores and these kids were junior lifeguards! I completely understand and endorse the Willis way to avoid and or escape rip currents. Obviously the time for lifeguards and jr. lifeguard programs to adapt, employ and teach the Willis way is NOW!

Thank you Moss for your extremely well written wonderfully educational article about the Willis Way to survive rip currents. It’s really easy to read and understand. Your article is reaching such a broad audience, thanks for making a difference! Blessings with Gratitude, from the artist of the rip current painting you printed, and a big fan of the Willis Brothers.
