WTF happened to Kelly LeBrock's Lips????? Kenny's eyes?? the Unity Shoppe Telethon??? is Santa Barbara a sanctuary city now??
well, in an effort to create some credibilty for the paper, the News-Press enlisted a guy named Peter Lance, a five time Emmy winner from ABC News..Peter Lance..sounds like a porno name like Rod Long or sumpin..anyway, Lance had a two part investigative series in the News-Press on the messy real estate brawl between the Unity Shoppe and Ensemble Theatre and the Victoria Street Theatre they shared..you'll remember in the end the Unity Shoppe had to buy another place to hold their "non-profit" telethons ...the price tag was in the millions and you bought it for them!!! expensive
but man oh man was this N-P story poorly written..I could have done a better job..it was disjointed, full of non sequiturs , lets go hunting, and emails from the folks involved that Lance tried to read every possible shady motive into...and it was full of old news! It's like this guy resurrected Harriet Miller's body to tell us shes dead!! (sorry Harriet)...um...I mean I didn't think anyone with this guys alleged journalist pedigree could write so bad...maybe that's why he was in TV news instead of print media...at the end of the article, the News-Press said that their employee Don Katich had no part in editing the story due to his past work producing the Unity Shoppe telethons with KEYT...wow, they must really trust Don!!
Basically, the Unity Shoppe directors are so spoiled when they don't get their way, they cry to the media..in this case their new mommy Wendy and the News-Press...and as no surprise, right next to the Peter Lance story was a story about the poor litte Unity Shoppe and a plea to give more this year because of all the hardships they have had to endure!! I mean, it is so obvious that the News-Press and Unity Shoppe are begging for your money so they can keep paying the non-profit directors big bucks.. they blame the economy for a decrease in donations instead of blaming the malfeasance of the directors... believe me.... this ain't about the poor folks, this is about more money for non-profits!! oh I see, in the public sector, the N-P says it's the gov't fault; in the private sector, the N-P says it's the economy's fault!
one thing is certain: as long as people lose at the casino, the Chumash will be able to kick in 50 grand for the telethon!
the Unity Telethon, since joining forces with the News-Press has been mismanaged and has gone downhill..pure and simple..they need to fire Executive Director Tom Reed and send him to work at the News-Press....
but really, what is the message of the Unity Telethon? it's this: SOCIALISM!! once a year, over-privileged creepy white Santa Barbrans will give poor undocumented Mexicans a chance to get almost anything they want for free..they just come into the Unity store and pick up a bunch of stuff and leave without paying...that's the message.... and that's AMNESTY in my book!! and you illegal aliens who shop at the Unity Shoppe, don't be fooled..these white botoxy people who are gushing all over themselves about how charitable they are ... well you can bet tomorrow they will want you deported..and no more pinto beans for you!!!!
