.Your Letters, 2/28

Critical Concern

I found it ironic that your Feb. 14 Bohemian cover artwork had an “Eat Local Sonoma County” sticker while all your contributors and writer-at-large in the same edition reside out of the county.

Perhaps if you utilized local reporters for your Mike McGuire story, which first appeared in Sacramento’s Cal Matters, they could have questioned McGuire’s statement that “The members of the California State Senate—who are more representative of the Golden State than ever before—are ready to keep us moving forward, all of us, all together,” given that five of the seven members of McGuire’s leadership team are women and five are people of color that he boasted about look nothing like the general population proportionally speaking.

And perhaps they could have asked if this current theory, pushed by the likes of Ibram X. Kendi, that the “only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination”; the “only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination” is racist and sexist, not to mention illegal in California.

Letter Love

Thank you, Gary Sciford.

Your “Ex Prez” letter (Feb. 7) was perfectly stated. We hope these true and very important statements will wake people up to the fact that this man is not qualified to be our president. He wasn’t qualified the first time, and he definitely is not qualified now.

Karen & Jim Brainerd
