Fourteen people were just slaughtered in San Bernardino, and Barbarella writes a fucking column about a puzzle room (Diary of a Diva: “A Room with a Clue,” December 3). Are you kidding me?

One of the Most Beautiful Stadiums in the Country

I’ve just read your November 26th column ostensibly written by Kevin Faulconer, “El Niño, El Schmiño.” If it’s true that he feels the Chargers are so important to our community that if they leave San Diego — “I hope El Nino brings a real rain, one that washes this whole stinking city off the face of the earth” — he’s much sicker than previously imagined.

The Chargers have been a financial drag on our city for many years now. The Spanos family is clearly more interested in feathering their own nest than with delivering services to our community. When is the last time they provided services to the poor in our community? When did they provide educational resources to our community? All they want is taxpayer-supported gifts, and they then demand to keep all profits (parking fees, concessions, television revenues, etc) without giving back to the taxpayers that funded their monopoly in the first place by buying them a new stadium where we already have what Dick Enberg once said was one of the most beautiful stadiums in the country.

Enough! Let them leave and let’s get a mayor who truly cares about San Diegans and not his own political gain.

Better Than Boobs/Butts

Thank you for all of the medical marijuana advertisements every week (better than the boobs/butts ads).

The county outlet only had bake-your-own edibles and their own untested vape equipment. The city cannot seem to get out of its own way.

To sleep pain-free, I want a tested product of consistent quality at a reasonable price — just like other medications I take. Commercially produced edibles work for me, but shops keep closing. I need your ads. Medical marijuana is legal.

Even though my article was turned in prior to the (most recent) horrific shooting, I want to address this letter, for anyone who reads the comments here. In my "Diary," I write about my personal experiences. I make it a point not to discuss world events unless I have a very direct, first-person experience with it. Such as 9-11. Ultimately, my column is meant to be a light-hearted slice-of-life installment, with whatever occasional real-life issue that I may be facing at any given time. I don't write about politics, I'm not a pundit. My column is memoir. As horrified as I am by many things happening in the world right now, as much as the news often makes me cry, you will not likely see any of that in my column. One of the most important things, especially in times like these, is that we do not lose our humanity. We keep living our lives. Otherwise, the terrorists win. If you're looking for reactions to shootings and/or the political circus, there are plenty of columnists, journalists, and talking heads covering that already.
