Vaccine-hesitant comes forward

Looking for a house with five murders

Above, just one of the many billboards placed around San Diego in an effort to reach the vaccine-hesitant African-American community. Below, one of several followup billboards designed to reach a...different vaccine-hesitant demographic. “We’re not telling them anything they don’t already believe,” says Spiracy.

Discriminating intelligence

I am NOT going to take the Covid vaccine (“City expands outreach to vaccine-hesitant communities,” SD on the QT: Almost Factual News, June 18). There is no proof that it works. There seems to be evidence that it wears off in time. People vaccinated can be carriers as well. Pfizer and Moderna causes heart disease and Johnson and Johnson causes blood clots. So far 10,000 people have died from taking the vaccine --NOT ME.

This is the United States and I have the right to chose whatever treatment I want not just the AMA/Pharmaceutical company’s version. I have been very successful in the past with alternative medicine but it’s not for everyone. Most people of low intelligence don’t have the maturity and self control to use alternative medicine as it usually involves a life style change. Drooling, they stare glassy eyed at the idiot box as they drop the bottle of alternative medicine and it rolls under the sofa, forgotten. It is unconstitutional and anti-American for the government to dictate to me what sort of medical treatment I must have. I WILL NOT TOLERATE SUCH TREATMENT.

I am being discriminated against because I am intelligent. And don’t say: There’s no proof alternative medicine works. There’s plenty of proof if you turn off the tube and pick up a book but people of low intelligence read poorly and, like bleeting sheep they blindly follow one another over the edge of a cliff. I am NOT sick now nor will I be. I will NOT take the Covid vaccine.

Homicide bonus

Read with great interest your article on the impact of murders on housing prices, that they can take 20% of the value of a house (“Murder brings down price of some San Diego homes,” Cover Stories, August 19.) If you hear about any houses in which FIVE murders have been committed, so that the house is being given away free, could you please let me know immediately? Thanks. Asking for a friend.

Lament from Chiapas

Thank you for your article (“Trattoria Etrusco: like eating a cloud,” Tin Fork, May 13). I will talk to you about it because I closed the Etrusco Trattoria in Tijuana and moved to a resort [that I contacted with] to create a trattoria and a menu for their restaurant in the resort. I left the contract with the lodge, because it did not respect the agreements made and the agreed obligations. I am stuck in Palenque, Chiapas, working to live or survive. I would like to launch an appeal for a possible sponsor. If anyone is interested in my work, I am available to reopen the Etrusco restaurant.
