Weekly Poll
Did you find the video that SLO city officials made joking about "hot," "shirtless" firefighters offensive?

Yes. It was sexist and demeaning to the brave members of the SLO fire department.
I was more offended by the terrible jokes and bad acting.
It was in poor taste, but the media is hyping it up way too much.
The video was good-natured self-deprecation This is political correctness run amok!

Anna Weltner: insightful

By Steven Pressman - San Francisco

I just wanted to write a quick note of deep appreciation for your very kind review of my film, 50 Children, which showed during the SLO Jewish Film Festival (“Jewish for a weekend,” Jan. 9).

I thought the review was one of the more intelligent and insightful pieces of commentary about the film (and its overall historical context) that I’ve read ever since the film was first released. It was a pleasure to read, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to show the film at the festival this weekend.
