It was more than a disappointment to read your news report of Galen Avery’s death; it was a disgrace. Many of us from the Santa Barbara Class of ‘83 felt the same.

I knew Avery only by name; however, I am quite certain that he was a son to the Averys. Maybe a brother to one or more. Possibly even a father. And I am very sure that he was a friend to many.

In no way did he deserve your disgraceful headline and article.

The report seems fact based, save for the headline. I take the title "Legendary Partier" as something to celebrate, live up to. Far too few of us enjoy the moments we have. Doesn't mean you have to indulge to party. Because he was known for indulging, there is the rub and possibly why the title comes off that way.

A friend in need is a friend indeed, but a friend with weed is better.

Here is a cameo Loonpt did in the cartoon South Park:

I didn't take the headline as an insult, but perhaps family, close friends, and other 'Cito partiers did feel offended. Are you serious, loon? (and redbunz hassled me for calling you loonpot!)
