Letter to the Editor

Quite a quote

Arroyo GrandeMarch 24, 2014 

I must respectfully disagree with your selection for Quote of the Day on March 18 (“Don’t allow a 24-hour drive-through in Los Osos”).

The closing statement of the final letter titled “Ride and Leave” nearly caused a spit-take across the breakfast nook when I read it. Likening the Friends of Oceano Dunes to calling the German Army the Friends of Poland was hilarious.

Makes one think of other ironic comparisons from history: The Spanish Inquisition, Friend of Religious Tolerance; Hernán Cortés, Friend of the Aztecs; The U.S. Government, Friend to Native Americans; to name a few.
