So be a good editor and get these men help. And when he said he only does this occasionally, does he not see his double chins and fat belly?
He does it every day. I am so angry.
Show us more about school board candidates
I have questions about the Newport-Mesa Unified School District Board of Education election campaign:
(1) Should the candidates spend as much as $40,000 on the race?
(2) Shouldn't the position be as was intended: non-partisan?
(3) Would it be possible for the Daily Pilot to publish question-and-answer interviews with the candidates on a weekly basis, starting in September, to allow the voters to try to understand the district's issues and the candidate's positions?
Also, because being a school board member requires that you know and understand an enormous amount of material, wouldn't it be a perfect idea for each board member to have at least one intern? A deal for the intern(s) could be struck with professors at local colleges/universities giving them credit for the semester/year. Great summaries for the board members and great experience for the students. Good idea?
Please excise graphic details in coverage
Please, please spare us graphic details ("Court won't review conviction," July 15).
The Greg Haidl case happened eight years ago. The specifics of it need not be repeated in each and every article for reader shock value. Even the Los Angeles Times, when referencing the same story, does not use the inflammatory language found in the Daily Pilot articles.
I consider the Daily Pilot a family read, but, several times in the recent past, have been greatly disappointed by the editing.
