Letter From the Editor

This edition of the Letter from the Editor is about bad behavior—more specifically, people behaving badly in public sectors. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not known for having a deep river of maturity coursing through my veins, but there’s a difference between loving a good toilet joke (or teasing the other paper about their new editor who writes like a dopey kitty cat) and calling the City Clerk a c-word on a popular public blog.

So, without further ado, here’s this week’s People Behaving Badly:








Godwin’s Law states: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.” I take that to essentially mean that “whoever mentions the Nazis has automatically lost whatever argument was in progress.” As my Christian- Conservative Uncle Eddie from Orange County says, “I didn’t vote for him, but he is my president and I gotta respect that.” So once you start painting Hitler mustaches on posters of the President, you’ve lost.

Juanita Sumner, outspoken rabble-rouser and blogger, had this to say about City Clerk Debbie Presson on September 20th: “I always knew Debbie Presson was a phony and a fake—it’s hard getting around a sugar-coated cunt like her.” Unless she’s speaking directly to Presson’s vagina, I really think Juanita should practice using her big-girl words.








And last but not least, our old pals the Chico News & Review have been busted recycling Synthesis jokes from the week before. Luckily, Amy knows that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Or in the case of the CN&R, the sincerest form of derpy-derp.

Sara makes the words happen.
