Re: “SLOMA executive director retires after 20 years

Fare thee well, Karen Kile. You have been such a blessing to the community all these years. I remember when you helped the Earth Day Coalition with our first Recycled Art exhibition. We thought it would be a small thing, but more than 1,000 people brought their beautiful, quirky, unusual creative endeavors, and you not only helped with the judging but had the walls and stands painted and then displayed the artwork in recognition that it was 'real' art. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Karen!

Let me guess, you're an Anglo with dreads, yeah?

Re: “Get your reggae on with some of the greats

hi, fyi -if u are the child of a Jamaican father (and can prove it legally), by law - Brit and Ja law (virtually the same 'cause the latter still has 'commonwealth' status) this status allows u to be a Ja citizen... if u meet that condition u may have a Ja passport, etc, and if u live there( as the child of a Ja'can dad), u may vote, etc.

Steel Pulse are Brit-Jamaicans. NOT the mis appropriation/ negative bs need to 'categorize' as "non Jamaican". thank you.

Re: “SLO Jewish Film Fest screens 'Miss Representation'

Forgive me for stating the obvious but isn't the American film industry in general a Jewish film festival? Seems redundant that's all.

Re: “Veterans' Voices exhibit celebrates patriots, artists

When you go off and see a bit of the world you gain the wisdom of seeing the people of the world as one. You also witness the inequality, the injustices, and inhumanity not exclusive to foreign soil...Lynn Schmidt has turned this first hand soldiering experience into Art. A picture can say a thousand words and "Forks" does this so eloquently.

Re: “Veterans' Voices exhibit celebrates patriots, artists

Wonderful story and I look forward to seeing the exhibit next week. That being said, this statement is disconcerting: "I think if somebody is going to put their life on the line and serve their country, I don't know why anyone would want to stop them," Schmidt said. "These people are willing to sacrifice their lives for their country..." I would submit that people in the military do not "serve their country", they serve the corporate, warmongering, war profiteering elite on the backs, bodies and misery of others throughout the world. At which point along the continuum does a person become responsible for their actions in facilitating and or being complicit in war crimes and crimes against humanity in wars based on lies? Following orders does not take away the blame. It was thus for me in 71', and it remains so today...

Re: “Rap-poetess Noname plays the Fremont Theater Feb. 20

If you are white you can't say it because of your privilege. That's the law. New Times needs to hire a diversity officer and educate the white employees about their privilege.

You're not supposed to say the N-word, racist. This has been reported to the SPLC.

Could you please use environmentally-friendly glitter? The microplastics are really affecting our environment in a horribly negative manner.

Re: “Walk the plank to the Needles Lookout in Giant Sequoia National Monument

We live on a beautiful planet and, fortunately, a lot of that beauty is in our state of California!! We should all be thankful and care for it.

Re: “Central Coast painters raise money for estuary, state parks

Thank you, Ryah Cooley, for featuring San Luis Outdoor Painters for the Environment, S.L.O.P.E., in this article! New Times is so supportive of the arts in our County.

The other artists in this exhibit are: Jan French, Sandi Heller, Larry Kappen, Bernie Kurtz, Mark Mertens, Rosanne Seitz, Mimi Whitney-Hafft, and four Emeritus members, Elizabeth Tolley, Dotty Hawthorne, Bruce Everett and Karen Well. And myself - Laurel Sherrie.

Re: “'Vice' humanizes—and skewers—Dick Cheney

Although alluded to in the film and in the above critique, the role that Lynn Cheney's ambition played in the man that Dick Cheney became cannot be overstated.

Re: “Yes, New Year's Eve is on a Monday night, but you can still party close to home

New Year's even should never be on a Monday; New Year's should never be on a Tuesday; and the first work day of the year should never be a Wednesday. Time to review and revise the last week of the year, and how it impacts the first week of the new year. Everyone break out a calendar and let's do this.
