  1. I stopped reading the Santa Clara Weekly. I enjoy this website much more because I get the local news daily and the writing is better and sometimes even funny. It reminds how bad the writing was in the Weekly. The Milestones column used to put me to sleep. I’m glad you’re covering local politics and pointing out the ridiculous stuff that gets printed in the Weekly. Keep up the good work.
