Re: “A Message to Readers

You misrepresent why The Bay Citizen folded a couple years ago. It had nothing to do with funding or the business model, and the reasons were widely reported at the time. You should really do your homework before reporting something as fact. You wrote, "the news media generally does a terrible job telling the truth about itself." And then you did exactly that type of bad reporting. Geesh!

Re: “Do Disabled Motorists Need Free Parking?

Wow. Talk about a bizarre, misplaced agenda by this reporter. Confront disabled people over their use of placards? Based on what? That they should have a limp or be missing a limb?

People get placards for reasons that might not be obvious visibly, such as a heart ailment or recovering from cancer treatment and being unable to walk long distances. What type of jerk gets in the face of these people?

Over possibly $150,000 in lost revenue for year? That's possibly $17 per hour of lost revenue. Lets go abuse people for that princely sum!

If this reporter thought about all sides of the story, instead of failing to question this bitter notion by some drivers that disabled people are getting away with something, he would have questioned some of the awful confrontations this story advocates for.

What's next? Go yell at the homeless guy in the soup line because he doesn't look starving to you?!
