  • "I've accepted for decades the routing of tax monies away from ordinary 50 hour a week workers as I \was, but it's going too far to play who lives/who dies games with nearly half a vaccine pool. This bug kills heavily in certain age brackets and until they show L.A. and Tulare are age burdened, I say distribute these vaccines without regard to race, Newsom, you up for recall prick."

  • "I understand what he is trying to accomplish, but I think he is looking only at the optics here ( eg , how this looks to his base). It does not matter how many doses are available if the people there LACK the desire to get the vaccine (cultural mistrust, suspicions, lack of education). Plus, low income inner city minorities are really dying at a much higher rate, but this move is political. This "equity over logic" stuff is not smart right now."

  • "Monday and yesterday were Government check days, so I bet at least 3/4 of California Valley residents were at Walmart when this happened. But apparently, these fools stopped by one of CV's many meth "dispensaries" for a little pick-me-up before heading to the big city (Paso Robles)."

  • "I guess I am not OK with... Everybody_lying for sensationalism. As you have acknowledged he did. Standards should matter. Just cause everyone else does it --makes OK to lower your standards I guess. Or maybe it is easier not to have any at all would be your argument? Myself and Mr. Trask do not work as journalists, but Josh does. This article did not meet minimum journalistic standards. Constructive criticism is not "lashing out" by any means, and poor journalism is not a crime."

  • "This is a lesson on how we respond: Many years ago Polio left it's crippled victims among us, we regularly witnessed the permanent havoc that this virus had on our family and friends. When the Polio vaccine was available I do not recall any reluctance to get this as soon as it was available. Later there were the KO Polio vaccine drives, with helicopters flying in the big cities to announce the availability of the second wave of a vaccine on a sugar cube. Schools required it, we squelched this curse. Today we hear of people getting very sick and or dying from this new virus. This reality has not been in my face like I remember Polio to be so yes there is a reluctance to infuse something in my body. So do you wait until you know someone who has died or do you participate in a KO Corona drive so everyone can have a measured level of safety? KO is for Knock Out."

  • "If I were Principal Ponomaroff, I would have expeditiously left the education world at least 10-15 years ago. How can one effectively educate children in a culture where words have feelings instead of meanings. Can you imagine little Adam Trask running home crying to mommy because his teacher used the word "abruptly," or "sudden?" I'm sure the aforementioned instructor would have been immediately suspended and an investigation launched to explore why a teacher (or news reporter) would dare describe someone who did something abruptly, suddenly, unexpectedly, briskly, hastily, and/or unanticipatedly using words that properly describe the actions. Not long afterward schools will be pulling more pages out of the dictionary and burning them in the courtyard. Mr. Trask, Mr. Yan: You cannot deny that this story was conveyed to us using all appropriate words in complete sentences. I know, I know, you are accusing Josh of exploiting this situation and insinuating that Principal Ponomaroff quit before he got fired. I agree that the story could be construed as "sensationalism," or a witch hunt. Well duh, show me a news source that doesn't sensationalize stories before all the facts are presented. Now that I think about it Mr. Trask and Mr. Yan: By lashing out at Josh before all the facts are known makes you guilty of the same offense: making assumptions without knowing the facts. Josh Friedman should also be considered innocent until proven guilty."

  • "I believe it is time to STOP giving attention to this pathetic, racist criminal. No more news coverage! It’s just feeding the ego and doing nothing for our community. Let’s move on and let the courts lock her up! Oh wait.. that won’t happen. There’s no law and order anymore. How tragic it is to see our world spiral down to hell. God have mercy on us all."

  • "Looks like he's at least late 50's. At 61 most administrators are fully vested if they also have 30 years of service, so maybe he thought he'd go one or two more years, but then sat down with his financial analyst and said, what the hell, see ya. The fact that he was ever an elementary school principal probably means he was a good educator and well thought of by not only the public but also teachers. I doubt there is any controversy here, despite loaded terminology such as "abruptly"."
