Letters From OC Weekly Readers
THANKS FOR PLAYING!
To be the first one to comment on this is amazing [“Summer Guide 2010,” June 11]. And I will just say this . . . OC Weekly’s Summer Guide fucking rocks! Nuff said!

THIS ELECTION HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE LETTER H
If you guys don’t stop showing the ugly face of that woman [Sheriff Sandra Hutchens], I am going to barf [Spencer Kornhaber’s “She’s Still the Sheriff,” June 11]! Chill already!

Quesy, your catty comments regarding Sheriff Hutchens’ looks speak loudly of you as an idiot. You’re most likely a Bill Hunt supporter. Glad your candidate lost. Now get out of my community and go back to white-trash Phoenix, where you belong.

Those tea partiers came out in force! Both of them!

This Hey, You! sums up in some ways why, as a country, we are in the horrible shape we are in [Hey, You! “Not-So-Special Delivery,” June 11]. There was a time when doing a good job was its own reward. Your boss pays you a hourly wage, right? If it is not enough, you owe it to yourself to seek a new place of employment. On top of that, in this economy, you should just be happy you have a job, you greedy SOB. One day, people will have to wake up and work for two simple reasons: to better themselves and for love of the work they do. Until people change to this way of thinking, we can sit back and watch as self-absorbed, greedy people like yourself continue to make things worse for humanity.

When someone delivers a pizza to your house, do you tip? “There was a time when doing a good job was its own reward.” Really? So, you work for free, then? Anyway, I’m pretty sure tipping is a custom older than anyone alive.

TOO MUCH ‘INK’ INK?
Seriously? How many times are we going to cover fucking chefs’ tattoos [Megan Brescini and John Gilhooley’s “Kitchen Ink,” June 4]? Really? It was cool, like, three years ago. Now we get it: Chefs ALL have tattoos, of all kinds of things, but one thing you can count on—some veggies, a whisk and a knife, oh, how fucking original. I swear, I’m over this. Fuck it. You guys are that pathetically strapped for something to write about? I guess I don’t have to bother picking up the OC Weekly ever. Thanks for that; saves me some time.

Dear Not Again, What is your fucking problem? An article may have covered chefs with tattoos yet again, but there is no reason to bash this story! It was not only well-written, but I found it to be pretty interesting, too. If you think you can write something better, then get off your fat ass and write something yourself! Assholes like you are always the first to complain, but you probably have done absolutely shit with your life and need someone to take it out on. You mentioned that you never have time, but you had time to write a pathetic comment didn’t you! Do yourself and everyone around you a favor—shut the fuck up!

Spencer Kornhaber’s June 11 article “She’s Still the Sheriff” mistakenly identified Sheriff Sandra Hutchens as a former LAPD deputy. She is a former Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department deputy. The Weekly regrets the error.
