Thanks for your wonderful writing and managing of our town paper. I'll miss your wit and perspective from your "Editor's Desk," as well as your coverage of our schools, arts and other essentials of Mountain View. Good luck in your new endeavor!

Best of luck to you, Don. I havent agreed with all of your editorial stances, but you've substantially rasied the bar for the Voice. Well done

Congratulations to both you and Andrea. I can't wait for the future Public Records Act lawsuits between you guys. And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that you made a huge mistake forsaking the burritos.

Don, Did El Camino Hospital just forget about your lawsuit against the Board when they claimed they were a private organization and didn't have to disclose the million dollar compensation of the CEO? This was a lawsuit that the Voice won, as El Camino Hospital even paid for the legal expenses of the Voice. I guess your hiring by the hospital suggests: "If you can't beat him, buy him!" This is truly a dark day for the citizens of the Hospital District.
