Letters from OC Weekly Readers
“What more could be expected of a slime rag that’s part of the Village Voice corral of über-left weeklies?”
Every breath that Rodney Alcala takes is another tax dollar put to waste [Christine Pelisek’s “The Fine Art of Killing,” Jan. 22].

Fight For Your White
Great article [Gustavo Arellano’s “Skinheads In Suits,” Jan. 22], well-written. Unfortunately, by this time tomorrow, the comments section will be filled with idiotic and sometimes paranoid comments attacking both you and anyone else that is not white/brown/or whatever enough. You know, the sort of people that blame their lives’ failures on the “fact” that some other group, usually based on a difference of culture or skin color, is “destroying” their vision of how things should be. The world needs losers to laugh at, and I know some of [the] readers of the OC Weekly will rise to the occasion. Sir, you are doing a great job; keep up the good work.

Gustavo, you’re just like the Energizer Bunny, except you keep going, going, going ever-more overboard in distorted anti-white hate journalism. Once again, your article has all the earmark rhetoric of anti-white hate groups like the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Did Heidi Beirich write this one too?
I’m confident all the anti-white bigots out there are just lovin’ your cartoon of Kevin MacDonald at the blackboard. But one wonders how many of these “people” are smart enough to know that the whole image is a fraud, a made-up straw man constructed just to feed the anti-white fantasies of the “bigots of color” who you seem to write for.
But what more could be expected of a slime rag that’s part of the Village Voice corral of über-left weeklies? The Village Voice and its spawn have a long heritage of producing degenerate journalism for a degenerate public. You proudly assist them in maintaining their reputation.

Self-preservation is not racism. The more little Gustavo Arellano hurls his accusations and insults, the less impact they have. The rise of White Nationalism is inevitable. Given the anti-White race hatred of domestic terrorists like Arellano, so are violence and civil war.

I assume this is tongue-in-cheek [Gustavo Arellano’s “The Same, Only More So,” Jan. 22]? Phoning it in? WTF?! DUDE, there are like 30-odd restaurants in the OC that I frequent as a direct result of your reviews over the years, so that allows you to get away with taking a week off—but SERIOUSLY—those of us that are part of your virtual gastronomic paparazzi expect something really effing cool and original in the next couple of weeks, in exchange for the free pass we are giving you today.

A Dirty Job...
It’s a hard-knock life in customer service [Hey, You! “Afternoon De-lush,” Jan. 22].

Just admit you work in a liquor store or a Rite Aid, you bitter b*tch.

I Loathe the Bus
I am a rider on the Orange County Transportation Authority 43 bus, and within the past two years have dealt with the OCTA transit system. I read and was intrigued by your article [Spencer Kornhaber’s “End of the Line,” Jan. 15]. Great job. I am glad there is some awareness out there about this sort of thing.
I still wonder why no one has covered how poor and inhumane the OCTA service is. It is incredibly unsanitary and inhumane in how they have everyone shoulder to shoulder packed in tighter than sardines. I don’t mind standing at all or being next to people for the most part, but I’ve been pinned against various people who either smell really bad or have a visible skin disease COUNTLESS times. Regularly during rush hour they pack in people so, so tight; it’s an obvious physical hazard. If the bus were to make an abrupt stop, there would surely be some lawsuits or even fights due to the falling of one passenger on another.
Last but not least, why does it have to take me up to two hours and some change to get from Cypress to Costa Mesa?

Not So Creepy?
I believe that Anonymous gave a very churlish response to the motorist-in-need [Hey, You! “Home Creepo,” Jan. 15]. She should have suggested a swap, wherein the guy himself sat in the driver’s seat and depressed the brake pedal while she walked behind the car and told him whether or not the brake lights were flashing. His response to that suggestion would have tipped his hand, had he some nefarious purpose in mind. So to Anonymous I say, Try to become a class act.
