Hates Hipster, hates fashion

The pedestrian always has the right of way

Rocking the front bangs

Fashionable junk

I must say that I’m disappointed with the recent developments with the Reader paper. I always picked it up every week to find out about music events, restaurant and movie reviews, etc. But I always thought the “hipster” column was completely stupid, especially in light of today’s issues that really matter. What constitutes a “hipster”? Who cares! I don’t. But now you’ve started having fashion articles, and the latest reader had a “fashionable” girl on the cover! You have got to be kidding (“Monica’s black bangs and bell sleeves ensemble from Forever 21, Aldo, Topshop and Target,” Cover Stories, May 1). As if there aren’t enough fashion magazines out there already! I am hoping you will get rid of all this junk and get back to the reasons I like the Reader – music, food, movies, neighborhoods, etc.

Solis and her two young children were almost hit in a crosswalk on St. Patricks Day. A few weeks earlier, one of her children was almost hit with their grandmother in a crosswalk.

Slow down or see the judge

I’m reading about this dude named Mike (“Why so many pedestrian accidents in San Diego?” City Lights, May 1) . “I typically speed everywhere I go,” said Mike, early 40s. Anyway, this is California. He’s probably not a California native. I am. Third generation. The pedestrians have the right of way in California state, even poor little San Diego County. The pedestrians have the right of way within every 58 counties of this entire state of California. The pedestrian always has the right of way, always has, does now, and always will. Look it up on the California State Constitution. The right of way goes to the pedestrian. Decades ago or decades from today, the pedestrian has the right of way. The vehicle does not have the right of way and this Mike guy really needs to be put in jail. Tell Mike slow down or have the judge revoke his license. Because in California state, driving is not a right. Driving is a privilege. The judge has the authority to remove and/or to revoke the privilege. I think Mike’s privilege needs to be revoked.
