Wouldn’t it be cool if thousands of federal employees assembled and surrounded the White House until the president paid them? Trapped in the Oval Office, he’d tweet how he felt such support, “coming from this beautiful wall of humans.”

Unfair to Vons

Editor:

I am concerned that you ran an opinion piece about the Vons on Lincoln and Broadway that recommends people not patronize the store. Why would you publish something that criticizes a local business that many people in the neighborhood depend on? What proof does Mr. Andrews have that there is a “worsening situation”? He even admits that the employees wont talk about it. It’s amazing that you would publish something with no proof recommending people not patronize a store.  I  go to Vons regularly never had a problem and wish to go there in the future. Why would  you give Mr. Andrews a forum to complain about how a business is run? I am sure you wouldn’t like it if someone ran an opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times and  reported that employee’s at the Santa Monica Daily Press were un-happy with how you ran things but wouldn’t comment on the record.  Is the food wholesome at Vons? Is the store clean? Is the produce of good quality? Yes to all. Those are the reasons the community patronizes Vons and they should do so in the future. How management runs the store is no one’s business but the employees (they are union) and the management as long as they are getting a legal wage.
