SPECIAL COVERAGE: Living With Wildfires: San Diego Firestorm 10 Years Later

Comments made by Barbarella

Events: Victor Villaseñor, Young Choreographers, and Marching Bands

This ranks among the highest compliments I could ever receive, a Letter to the Editor of the San Diego Reader, written by Victor Villasenor:

"You have some of the finest writers that I've ever read. Your writer Barbarella is fantastic. She'll write things that I'll think I'll be very bored with, and the way she handles it is just fantastic. This last article that she wrote, "Being Fat Sucks", I think is just fantastic work. And at the ending, where she tries on clothing, and she's told to go downstairs, and it's a medium that fits her, I read that to my wife, and it was just heart-touching. You have great writers.

I've written three national best-sellers, Rain of Gold, Thirteen Senses, and Burro Genius, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. I really appreciate your newspaper and your point of view."
