This once great paper has abandoned journalistic principles and become an unrepentant advocate of the Left without any attempts at balance or fairness. I terminated my subscription for this very reason.

The once famous masthead motto of “All the news that’s fit to print” has taken on sinister meaning as the story must now fit the political agenda of the paper. Other stories which might be at variance with the party line are ignored, dismissed or shuttled to the inside pages.

I wish these writers well and suggest they either rededicate themselves to the who what when where and why of journalistic integrity or find work in another field of occupation.

There is no such thing as job security. My suggestion to you and those who are getting the pink slips is to buy a small business. You don’t have to watch over your shoulder for the next economic thunderstorm, punch a clock or worry if you are five minutes late (after 17 years of dedication etc)your supervisor will call you out for tardiness. The stress is less and the upside is far more palatable. We have small companies in the $1 million-$15 million sales range in warm, sunny, beautiful Southern California and in the pipeline for a variety of different buyers.
