Sac still sucks

Re “Sacramento can learn from Austin” by Jeff vonKaenel (Greenlight, October 19):

This article’s comparison of Austin with Sacto omits two significant differences. First, Austin does not have to compete with municipal regions such as the Bay Area, Los Angeles and San Diego. Houston, Dallas and San Antonio do not match their allure. Second, Austin’s “weird” atmosphere is blessed by a large major downtown university. Its proximity complements and fuels Austin’s tech and music scenes. Sacramento lacks that centralized cultural core and does not match the attraction of California’s coastal cities.

Canada sucks

Re “Escape to Canada!?” by Raheem F. Hosseini (Feature, October 19):

LOL Canada. I bolted for Australia instead. Way easier to get in.

The U.S. sucks

Re “Escape to Canada!?” by Raheem F. Hosseini (Feature, October 19):

As a dual citizen, I feel justified and informed enough about both countries to say that the only country who should be building a wall at this point is Canada.

This party’s for suckers

Re “White out” by John Flynn (Scene & Heard, October 19):

[Forty-eight dollars] to bring your own dinner, dishes, beverages and blankets or furniture, just to wear white and feel special? Whoever is running this has P.T. Barnum-level genius for fleecing suckers. I tip my hat to you. I mean, I’m all for fun and silly events, but wow. I hope the performers at least got paid.

Trump sucks

Donald Trump continues to play to his white racist Republican crowd of Obama-haters as he tries to sabotage the successful and workable Affordable Care Act. Trump’s one-man-show and Obamacare vendetta will destroy the hope and health care coverage for millions of Americans. The president is deluded, and it is time Americans stand up to, confront and build a wall around this obsessive degenerate.

Brown sucks

Re “Poor California” by Matt Levin (News, October 19):

What do you expect, with an idiot as governor who creates crap for the rich to invest in and then uses that money [to fund] his private projects, while ignoring the real issues in this state. A poor state with a corrupt system of government.
