Roundtable: Troubles For Pension Reform, Food Stamps, Homeless Students

In response to Pat Finn,
My comment related to lack of verbal skill (this is radio!) that resulted in the impression that the participants were not confident in their grasp of the subject. After reading your comment, I played back the segment and counted no less than 15 "You Knows" as well as hearing a comment by Dave Rolland in which he commented on the food stamp issues being discussed and then had to back peddle as he stated that he was not sufficiently informed to support the comment he had just made. All of this may seem inconsequential in the larger scheme of things, but I have noticed a decline in professionalism in recent years with a dumbing down of performance standards in many aspects of the media. It is unfortunate that you prefer to defend sub-standard work rather than take seriously a listener comment that might inspire a second look to make your programming aspire to a higher standard.

Super Cocina is in City Heights, not Normal Heights as Troy Johnson reported.

City Heights is a vibrant international community full of hard working people who have come to this country for a better life and are full contributors toward that goal for themselves, their families and the community. Price Charities has been a prime contributor to the development of this area and has provided much needed financial and social investment from the private sector to improve the economy and lives of the residents in this area and beyond.

Troy Johnson's statement that coming to this neighborhood to eat at Super Cocina involves risking being shot is deeply offensive and dismissive of all that is positive about the community. Yes, crime exists in City Heights as well as in every community and to perpetuate elitist stereotypes in what I assume was a poor attempt at humor speaks volumes. Have some respect for the very people who make the food and run the businesses that your are "risking being shot" in order to partake.
