Reports the Union-Tribune: "If student and volunteer operators cannot raise enough money to pay the annual insurance premium due in the spring, UCSD's iconic Ché Café, a haven for leftist politics and counterculture, will be forced to close."

"Score one for capitalism," crowed La Jolla fat cat developer Horace Grabb, who is proposing to convert the site to an Urban Outfitters. "The American college campus, long the last reliable bastion of outright socialist thought in this country, has come to its day of reckoning. If privileged Southern California schoolkids can't support communist endeavors, really, who can?"

MURPHYJUNK, you are making it obvious that you have never stepped foot within the Che Cafe, which is fine but if you had you would realize that the facility is in fact handicap accessible and in compliance with the American's with Disabilities Act. Your attempt at overblown rhetoric and hyperbole is wasted here.

San Diego Reader, how is it possible for you to print a story about the Che Cafe's financial woes without including in your article the fact that the Che was burglarized, with thousands of dollars worth of sound equipment stolen? Isn't that something a publication that upholds journalistic ethics would choose to add in their article?

"Stolen" - that's a terrible word for the simple redistribution of wealth. Removing sound equipment requires labor. Labor, Che might agree, is the basis of ownership. QED. That said, skeptic, the heading does read "Almost Factual News." Thanks for reading, and for your comment.

Shut it down, nobody should be celebrating the Butcher of Havana. He died a deserved coward's death begging for mercy.

I always giggle out loud a little whenever the "ALMOST FACTUAL News" gag column fools yet another unobservant (and clearly gullible) reader ---

I wanted to make the readers aware of a new iphone app that saves bags and money. Many people grocery shop with re-useable bags but leave them in the car when they get to the store. The app is called "DON"T FORGET YOUR BAGS" and it sends a voice message when you get with 200 feet of the store. You check off the stores you want. It maps stores within a 20 mile area, gives directions, phone numbers, and when you hit "START TRACKING" when you get to your store you hear the voice message. This saves plastic and many stores are going to charge for grocery bags.
