WHAP! SLAM! PAO! The following letter concerns Nick Schou's July 19 article, "Mission Implausible ," outlining the CIA's denial of any knowledge of the alleged plot against Laos by Vang Pao and others.
This is a good article that addresses a very important issue. Another important topic is how the U.S. government broke the Neutrality Act themselves first, by arming Vang Pao in Vietnam and Laos. Examine the U.S. government in the Secret War, the laws they broke to conduct the war. Something like that would be very interesting to read.
GETTING THE OLD CALENDAR IN ORDER
Why did you change the movie guide of the calendar to exclude certain geographical areas (i.e., Long Beach)? You had an excellent movie guide prior to this change. It is doubtful the change is saving you significant money.
If Long Beach is now being excluded because it is not located in Orange County, then why is OC Weekly still distributed here? Either cease and desist the distribution here, or return to the previous format and include Long Beach in your movie guide.
What happened with the movie listings for various locations throughout OC? This sucks.
An editor responds: Due to space constraints and the easy availability of movie times via other media (e.g., the Web, other papers and the always enthusiastic Mr. Moviefone), we decided to limit our show times to select Orange County theaters.
Besides, we figured you were all just downloading bootlegs anyway.
