    Who’s this Correra?

    We make typos, but not so regularly in our big headlines and leaving them up for days.

    Seriously, anyone who thought highly of Tom Daly was already gonna vote for Lou.

      Thanks Vern. I have fixed it. Typos happen. Meanwhile, your post about BDS still has Don Wagner identified as a Democrat from Tustin when he is a Republican from Irvine. Ling Ling Chane lives in Diamond Bar, not Brea. I had a typo. You have factually inaccurate info.

      Just finished reading your Newman piece Vern. Would you like a list of factual mistakes emailed to you or should I just do my own post? I’ll note significant details aren’t published, like Newman’s campaign finances
