Editor’s Notebook: Emails

Not everyone who sends email is mad about the way I moderate comments or has a tip about a worthwhile story.

I get a lot of email in the course of a day.  Sometimes it’s from a reader with a story tip.  That’s  how I found out about the story.

Sometimes I get email from readers who don’t like the way I am moderating comments about a story or they don’t like the way I wrote the story or who believe I’ve left out pertinent facts.  Yes dear readers, you all do a great job of keeping me honest and my feet are often blistered because you keep them in the fire.

Then, there are the emails like the following that make me remember how lucky we all are to live in Benicia.

Not a tip, just a "shout-out" to the Benicia Public Works Dept. One of your employees helped a young woman , a 5 yr. old and an infant safely off an off-ramp yesterday when her car suddenly stopped and they were at risk for being hit. THANK-YOU!!!!!! 

Everyone have a safe weekend and keep those emails coming!

Because Nowadays: Honesty is such a lonely word Everyone is so untrue Honesty is hardly ever heard And mostly what I need from you I can always find someone To say they sympathize If I wear my heart out on my sleeve But I don't want some pretty face(that's you J.B.) To tell me pretty lies All I want is someone to believe Honesty is such a lonely word Everyone is so untrue Honesty is hardly ever heard And mostly what I need from you I can find a lover I can find a friend I can have security Until the bitter end Anyone can comfort me With promises again I know, I know When I'm deep inside of me Don't be too concerned I won't ask for nothin' while I'm gone But when I want sincerity Tell me where else can I turn Because you're the only one that I depend on Honesty is such a lonely word Everyone is so untrue Honesty is hardly ever heard And mostly what I need from you

You do a good job JB. But I do have a problem with people not giving credit to their/others poetry. Billy Joel, Bobby.

I am new on here and I see so much from this Bobby Richardson. Is he for real or is this a joke? No one can really be that way.
