Reader promotes obesity with Burger issue

More than one poet named David Berman

Poetic confusion

Just wanted to let you know that only one of three poems you featured by David Berman in the September 12 issue was written by the actual David Berman, the one who passed away last month (“Three Poems by David Berman,” Rhyme and Verse, September 11). “Imagining Defeat” is his, but the other two weren’t. I don’t know where they came from, but it would’ve been a better move to go with “Governors on Sominex” instead. Oh well.

Fat city

With 75% of Americans either overweight or obese, I am surprise that you dedicate an entire issue to burgers and the myriad of places selling them (“2019 Burgers issue,” Cover Stories, September 11).

Upgrade to the western burger at H Brothers in Escondido, if only to experience their scratch BBQ sauce.

Birdman of R.B.

Thank you for this very interesting story (“Rancho Bernardo man with 84 cockatiels fights San Diego Humane Society,” City Lights, September 11). It seems to me that the birds lived in conditions comparable to a typical cage or nesting in the wild but that the human was the one who lived in squalor.
