We have many friends who live in the Corona del Mar area of Newport Beach, and we are frequently in the area, but I think it's a bit divisive for the Daily Pilot to have a column (Corona del Mar Today) that focuses only on this area of our town and not provide similar coverage to other geographic areas of the community, such as Balboa Island, Mariner's Mile, Balboa, West Newport, Newport Coast, etc.
Why not have your writer educate herself on the other villages of our community, or create a column that provides more balanced news coverage for all the villages of Newport Beach?
Concealed weapon law inappropriate
The Daily Pilot's coverage of Assemblyman Allan Mansoor's bill to allow concealed weapons in the Capitol confirmed everything I had previously understood about the assembly member. His staff member is quoted as saying that "he's always carried a concealed weapon. To him it's kind of a no-brainer."
