Re: “Fruitvale the New Hipster Hangout?

@kathleen richards:

you said, "...it's unfortunate that we weren't able to include their quotes because of space reasons in the newspaper. "

this is a very bad reason to publish a lopsided story, even one you've now written off as just a "trend report." if you're going to make a claim about anything, including a trend, it makes sense to prove that there is something to your claim.

there are nine quotes in this piece from your sample group of "hipsters" — at least three of which are weak/irrelevant and could [should] have been easily cut; freeing up more "space" for the vendor quotes that, incredibly, you have now chosen to introduce in the comments section.

maybe you guys were in a pinch and needed to fill some space. maybe you're under-staffed and couldn't spend more time. there are probably ten reasons why this piece was approved to go live; but none of them are good. it's too late to re-write the article via comments. just do better next time.

a moderately challenging crossword puzzle would have made better use of this space.
