An airing of grievances

Arguably the least attractive place in San Luis Obispo is where South Street meets Parker Street. How about replacing the dreadful, colored plastic traffic sticks with a decorated concrete island divider?

Does Charter Communications actually believe its series of commercials with obnoxious jingles (first with scantily clothed “angels” on the roof watching motorcycle wheelies, then in an office setting where somebody clearly spiked the water cooler) will boost sales? I don’t know about you, but I cannot get to the remote control mute button fast enough.

Does anybody read, understand or enjoy the comic “Wumo”? To The Tribune, why not bring back a series that nearly all people enjoy? Maybe something like “B.C.” or “The Wizard of ID”? (You’re already doing it with “Peanuts.”)

Why doesn’t Thomas’ preslice its English muffins so bread crumbs and seeds aren’t left spread out all over the kitchen counter when you have to cut them apart yourself? Just sayin’.

And finally, the federal government, which has “Tomahawk” cruise missiles and “Apache,” “Blackhawk,” “Kiowa” and “Lakota” helicopters — and used the code name “Geronimo” in the attack that killed Osama bin Laden — officially objects to the name of the Washington “Redskins.” Huh?
