Suspects in several murders, yet you only name the "white" victim.

Come on Almanac you're better than that.

Editor's note: We pointed out Cate Fisher because she is the only victim who lived in the Almanac circulation area. It's where she resided, not the color of her skin. We have noted other victims in other stories, including this one Wednesday: Web Link

To Bob of Central Menlo: no, they aren't. The almanac is the root of all unnecessary gossip within the most money sucking of gold digger wives in Atherton as well as drama in and throughout it's circulation area. They are not responsible for any of the illegal acts in Atherton, however; they are absolutely responsible for giving irate, irrational atherton residents a voice on the world wide web. Just build a fence around atherton and i promise you no one will notice, they never leave their houses.

I agree with the editor's point of view. She is mentioned because she was a resident of the area receiving the publication. I believe some people are so negative they can find anger and hatred in anything even when it isn't even there. How miserable you must be.

Some just want to be negative to be negative. It is good the the psych business.

I think Bob in MP truly thought he was pointing out something the publication was at fault for & he was merely mistaken. It's not necessary clear where the circulation areas overlap between PA Weekly & The Almanac, including w/respect to EPA. I assumed Ms. Fischer was only mention because she was the only MP resident. We don't need to assume Bob in MP is miserable; racism is common enough for him to make that assumption. Thanks you, Almanac, for the clarification. I really hope these crime spree killers are rounded up w/out further drama.

Either way, her ethnicity wasn't mentioned, only her city of residence which was relevent. So, why refer to her as the "white" victim?

Editor and Almanac Staff, I understand Ms. Fisher lived in MP and that you have named the other victims in other articles.

But when you specifically have a story about the suspects or possible suspects either name both victims of those suspects or name none.

The argument about it's not our circulation area doesn't hold water. You write plenty of quality stories about East Palo Alto in the Almanac. Granted many of those stories are from PAWeekly staff or Bay City News Service, but they are comprehensive and
informative.

Also it's bit tough to separate out those living a city so intertwined with Menlo Park especially when their grade school district covers most of the students in the Eastern part of Menlo Park and their high school students comprise a substantial percentage of the M-A High School population. Additionally numerous East Palo Alto grade school students attend Menlo Park City School District schools. Also East Palo Alto is part of the Menlo Park Fire District.

I am curious as to how many Almanac readers (hard print or online) reside or work in East Palo Alto, and how many businesses in East Palo Alto make use of the Almanac, do you accept advertising from East Palo Alto resident and businesses and realtors listing homes in East Palo Alto?

If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck....

By the way you're barraging us with all these requests to "support (your) local journalism" - well let's hope the support helps.

Oh and Ms. Miller - the ethnicity point - the Almanac in not a few articles refers to "hispanic" or "black" victims and suspects.

Miss Miller, it also happens that Bob, like many of us readers, know that Cate Fisher was white.

Thanks, Bob, for thoughtful perspective. I am an EPA resident who read The Almanac, as I did when I grew up there. When I worked in EPA, it & PA Online covered some EPA events & issues & myself & coworkers read it frequently. But a lot of EPA residents pay no heed to either, actually. They get their news from TV or the Merc and/or Chron.

You may want to know, if you don't already, that epatoday.org has a lot of EPA viewers/readership as it often addresses issues very specific to our city.

What is wrong with you people. Bottom line is serial killing gang members are on the loose in the bayarea especially in a city right next door to you. What is the EPA chief doing about it other than talk. This group of murdering thugs is going to kill more. And they have associates that are part of this criminal conspiracy. Does anyone kow how many people these clowns have killed? Look it up. Lastly what in the world are you doing in EPA sitting in a car in a very very bad neighborhood? Where are the Marshalls, FBI and other agencies. EPA cannot handle business! Sahme on the bunch of you.
