What’s News?


I was really disappointed to see that instead of plastering it all over the cover, you chose to put the news on how Santa Barbara City College won best community college in the nation in a quarter-page News of the Week article on page 14.

Your cover story that week was “Need for Weed.” Just how many times in the past year have you put “weed” on the cover? I am sick of it. Do you really think that there are that many people in Santa Barbara that are sooo interested in medical marijuana?

SBCC winning this title is big news, and you should have handled it as such. I am truly disappointed in your choice of what makes it on to the cover of your newspaper.

Editor's Note: We last mentioned marijuana on our cover in February 2010 in a single line highlighting the news story "Medical Marijuana Shakedown."
