Hooked into boring Baja story

How North County bluffs are like south Florida

I spotted a tire mounted on a pole with white letters that read “Punta Final.” It opened to a dirt road that stretched for more than ten miles until it reached the Sea of Cortez.

Elementary journalism

Talk about a hook! I kept expecting something tragic to happen (“Three checkpoints, seven hours south of Tecate,” Cover Stories, January 27). Instead I felt like I was reading some fourth grader’s “How I Sent My Summer Vacation”. BORRRING!

What needs protecting? The beach and the bluff. Both things make the coast and the coast is being ravaged.

Fine sand story

I just finished reading Mr. Larson’s brilliant and fury-inducing piece on the perils of coastal living (“Will sand save San Diego North County’s bluffs?” Cover Stories, January 13). As a beach lover and native Floridian who has watched her home disintegrate under the concrete of ever more hideous McMansions, your coverage of the similar fate of San Diego County’s beaches resonated.

I long to wrest control of anything that concerns sand and/or water from the Army Corps. I feel a profound kinship with Ms. Timberlake, Mr. Jaffee and Ms. Walsh. I want to take Diane Korsh out and force her to listen to a basic physics lecture, followed by coastal history, and topped with a hefty dose of Buddhism. She’s been there 20 years! Longer than the erosion! Sakes alive. Thank you for running this critical piece. It’s been over 60 years that the alarm bells have been ringing in South Florida, and falling upon the absolute most deaf of ear. Human greed knows no bounds. Will this time, this place prove to be different?
