Comment Catsup

If our posts are the meat and potatoes of this blog, then it's the commenters who provide the condiments. Without 'em, you might have a meal, but it would be pretty bland, unattractive fare. It being Monday, it's time to get caught up on some note-worthy comments from the past week.

First and foremost, Anonymous, regarding the Monrovia Murder:

I live one-half mile from Library Park and heard nothing about this shooting until I read about it on Foothill Cities.

Unfortunately, we were slow to pick up on the story as well. In fact, it was only thanks to reader intervention that we realized that the murder had, in fact, occurred during the Relay for Life (a fact not noted in the first media accounts). If anything, this demonstrates just how hard it is to know what's going on in our communities and the degree to which we rely on readers for info. If you think we've missed something or you've got an issue you want us to cover, be sure to just drop us a line. Regardless, the shooting in Library Park was tragic and senseless.

The marijuana debate got heated (and lengthy) after the "Medicine You Can Smoke" post. I won't revisit the whole thing, but anonymous, the prolific fellow that he is, was kind enough to spam every Claremont-related post, a feat, once completed, that prompted him to conclude, "Wow! Finally found a use for your impotent little blog!" That's odd. I've heard it's the wacky tobaccky that causes trouble down there.

Miss Havisham delighted, as usual, taking the time to pen an impressively alliterative comment on the bad publicity Parsons has been receiving: "Poor Parsons Pasadena plummeting plumbing projects PR pity party." Joining her in "Comments That Made Us Smile" category, Aaron Proctor suggested Robin Salzer come up with a "Centinel Caesar Salad." We second the motion.

But the Best Comment of the Week Phantom Trophy (we don't really have one) goes to anonymous (about time!) for his amusing description of Rep. Dreier and his political clout.

Dreier's not going anywhere anytime soon. He's got a Hulk Hogan-like headlock in the local party, and too much respect in DC. We'd be stupid to get rid of him. Besides I don't think a Dem could get elected in this district if their life depended on it. You saw what he did to Matthews last time around.

Well, if it was anything like the Hulk-Hogan headlock he used earlier, I'm guessing anony is referring to when Dreier pulled a reverse frankensteiner on Matthews. Of course, I know a Pasadena pol who could probably provide more expertise on that subject.

The murder in Monrovia was at 1:45 in the morning. I'm pretty sure the walk was over by then.

The scary thing is the sad sack excuse for a newspaper that is the Tribune. The reporter wrote that the victim was dead when the officers arrived and that he died at the hospital two hours later. When I pointed this out, I got the following response: I guess I need to do a correction. You're the second person to point this out.

Whatever happened to "I screwed up, I better fix it."

Note to the Tribune. Buy a scanner. Call the local PDs twice each night. It's great work for interns. This is the age of the Internet, that story shoulda been on my computer before your newsprint hit my neighbor's spinklers that morning.

I had the same initial thought about the walk, but I think it was actually an all night deal for charity.
