Upset by Elliot Rodger Story
June 19, 2014 -
I am questioning the judgement of the Topanga Messenger's front-page story, Isla Vista Murderer Reflects on Topanga Childhood in Manifesto. The article is, mostly, just excerpts from Rodgers 141-page end-of-life writing, quoted very, very freely, like a lazy review of a novel. The take-away seems to be Topanga loved by everyone, even violently disturbed woman-haters. Or maybe it's just informing Topangans that this suddenly notorious individual lived in their midst, but that seems a little pointless. Slightly more context would have been good. Doesnt sit right with me, but others may feel differently.
Anyway, not to be a grouch, I like the paper usually.
