    Nothing much wrong with his reasons for buying the paper. I suppose people will see what they want to see in Manchester's purchase of the paper based on their political and social biases. Anyhow, at least he is a local business leader that has an interest in the community. I don't agree politically with him but better Manchester than a Sam Zell type.

    The one bright example that San Diegans can be proud of and model is the biotech industry. And, this came about because of the vision of a truly great San Diegan, Roger Revelle. We need more Roger Revelles in this town.

    Balance? Allowing no truth about Spanos is balance? Sorry, that's not a newspaper. That's a greeting card.

    A newspaper is not supposed to be a platform. It's supposed to be a newspaper.

    I believe a little balance will provide a clearer path to positive progress for taxpayers and sports fans alike.

    Now that the "INSIDERS" [CITY BOOSTERS?"]control the only newspaper in town they have the power to bend and influence any and all decisions regardless of public sentiment. As a long time resident of SD I didn't think that things could get any worse than they are but I was wrong.
