Follow Up: Do you trust the press?
A: How about all the demolishing happening in Carmel. They like to knock down houses that are 60 or 80 years old that could be remodeled. It''s kind of a shame because it ruins the character of your community.
Believe every word? Yes I do. Especially the Carmel Pine Cone. [Editor''s Note: She works there.]
A: The protest, the war protest at our school, North Monterey High School in Castroville in November. Just a bunch of kids got together and had a war protest. Then there were protesters protesting the protesters.
True Stories? Yeah, probably because I don''t read the newspaper too often.
A: The unemployment rate is almost ten percent now. [Here, we have] the two lowest-paid industries in one of the wealthiest counties in the country and the world. The Apocalypse might happen right here.
Print is Good? I don''t trust the TV news at all because all they care about is [being] fast.
