Black Lives Matter

Dear Reader,

Our letters over the last two months have been focused on the coronavirus.  Now we are dealing with a centuries-old plague that has never been successfully defeated in our country – structural racism.  The video of George Floyd’s death under the hands and knees of three Minneapolis policemen has traumatized a nation not because it is new, but because it is so vividly horrific, pornographic, and obscene that anyone who sees it clearly experiences the cold-eyed, heartless violence that has been visited on black bodies and souls for 500 years.

A Symbolic Move? Friday's Retail Reopen Changes Little for San Diego Businesses

By Jennifer Van Grove, Brittany Meiling, and Karen Pearlman via San Diego Union-Tribune

EXCERPT:

The latest step in reopening California puts caution ahead of capitalism. Per Gov. Gavin Newsom’s orders some “low-risk” retail businesses can reopen, but only for curbside pickup. And there is a long list of rules they must follow to keep customers and employees safe. Although low-risk retail hasn’t been clearly defined by the state, the governor has used bookstores, music stores, toy shops and florists as examples.

EXCERPT:

Readers rejoice: A book store is returning to Del Mar Highlands Town Center with DIESEL, A Bookstore.

It’s been five years since Barnes & Noble closed after 21 years when the center renovations began, a heartbreaker for both the community and the center owner. Donahue Schriber Realty Group pledged to bring back a book store when the expansion was complete and they are delivering on that promise with DIESEL, a longtime California indie book store that also has a location in Brentwood.

“A bookstore has been the number one request from our customers for a number of years. We are thrilled to have a long-established independent bookstore join the center”, said Patrick Donahue, chairman and CEO of Donahue Schriber Realty Group. “Diesel’s new Del Mar Highlands location will be a great addition to the community.”
