Critic of Village Laguna Criticized in Equal Measure



I was appalled that the Indy would publish such a blatantly false and mean spirited piece of journalism as Michael Ray’s article (Letters, “The Hot Blond,” June 29) in your paper last week.  It was full of false information about Village Laguna, an organization that has worked for over 45 years to preserve the historic integrity of Laguna and to not have it destroyed by those “who know the price of everything and the value of nothing.”  I might expect nothing less from a real estate investor and developer but I do expect more from the publisher of this paper.

  1. Dear Johanna, the fact that you think this paper or any other should censor letters/comments from a member of our community only goes to prove Mr. Ray’s point. As far as I see it, Mr. Ray’s point of view represents the silent majority, not the outspoken minority – ahem you and your five friends.

    You going to try and have ^ censored too.

  2. Reply to JohannaFelder, President of Village Laguna:

    When you don’t have the facts on your side, you attack character. This is a well known tactic and all too prevalent today in American politics. Sigh.

  3. Bravo, Mike Maziz. “Historic integrity” is a fabricated buzz word meaning, “We don’t own the property and have no financial interest in it, but we want to tell the owner what he can and cannot do with his property.” Freedom means nothing to the Left. They want only power and control and will say and do anything to keep power and control. They use rhetoric and spin, not common sense and reason.
