  1. What? Did I offend someone? Why was my post removed? Sometimes the truth hurts and we need to solve problems by understanding the problem – even if it hurts. You don’t stop armed robberies that occur in ESJ by putting all the police in Willow Glen.

  2. @HB,
    Don’t feel targeted, even Aurelia Sanchez had her comment removed in which she thanked SJI for reporting on the Plant Shopping Center homicide.
    And I guess my suggestion that the VMC /VPG workers that were having their “moral” health impaired look for other employment opportunities was too controversial?
    But at least the “covid” expert is back in a new “wild flower” persona.
