Don't forget Funky Quarters and Cinnamon Cinder

Greek fresco was really from Crete

Jason Mraz got his start at Java Joe’s in Ocean Beach more than twenty years ago.

Rock out and over

I enjoyed the article by Thomas K. Arnold on the rock spots of San Diego (“San Diego glimpses: the Doors, Elvis, Grateful Dead, Kingston Trio, Beach Boys, Pearl Jam, Gary Puckett, Ritchie Valens,” Cover Stories, September 7). There were others that we should include. The El Cortez Hotel hosted acts like Simply Red. Funky Quarters in the 1970s, El Cajon Boulevard, hosted Seals and Crofts, B.J. Thomas, the world famous Cinnamon Cinder near 70th and El Cajon, and folk places like Occam’s Razor on El Cajon Boulevard, which hosted folk acts.

Not Greek to her

I’m calling about the picture that’s placed on page 38 of your current Reader (“Are dorado being overfished?” Fishing Report, September 4). Under the picture it said a 3000-year- old Greek fresco of a young fisherman, etc. The fresco is of a Minoan youth from Crete, and it’s probably from the palace of Knossos, and not Greece. Minoans were not Greeks.
