Editor,

In my opinion, we are fortunate to have the variety of news that the San Mateo Daily Journal brings to the table. The Feb 16-18 edition offered a column by Greg Wilson which I felt was quite insightful about the constantly evolving real estate landscape that affects us all in Redwood City one way or another. Next to Greg’s useful column was a well-written column by Shavonne Lin (A junior at San Mateo High School) about prison reform. The fact that someone this age would take the time to write a thoughtful piece on this important topic blew me away. Last but not least (on the same page) was a letter written by former San Mateo County Superior Court judge and state senator Quentin L. Kopp (Ret) about the Cow Palace land grab.

The Daily Journal is to be commended for their creativeness in sharing news like these stories in an age where much of the news makes me want to turn it off and watch the Hallmark Channel or Jeopardy instead.
