Letter to the Editor

Mean column

San Luis ObispoApril 5, 2013 

I was very happy to see the letter from Carol Bowman and Beverly Stewart regarding Lon Allan’s ridiculous, mean-spirited column about the geese at Atascadero Lake (“Goose barbecue would solve lake’s problem,” April 2).

I couldn’t believe that he would think about our wildlife in this way, much less write about it. How very irresponsible to suggest a goose barbecue!

Where is the editorial staff on this piece? Lon seems to feel superior and entitled. He is sending out a very hateful, destructive message in that it could encourage someone to take matters into their own hands. Lon, how about a little journalistic integrity?
