Editor,

Being confined to a wheelchair for over five years I have visited all the restaurants that Matt Grocott mentioned in his article and many more in San Carlos. I have never had a problem or felt uncomfortable in any of them.

It’s unfortunate that some people enjoy making life difficult for others emotionally and financially. The financial responsibility for ADA compliance should not only be on the tenants but the owners who lease their buildings to them if knowing they are not ADA compliant.

In the future the city of San Carlos planning and building departments should inform future tenants when applying for use or building permits about ADA requirements. This would help to eliminate unknown costly upgrades.

Thank you Harry for your follow-up letter on the column. It is good in particular to have your perspective added.

Thank you for your letter and recommendation, Mr. Turiello. Unfortunately, although the majority of disabled people are decent people, a few rotten apples destroy the bunch. Just look at our so-called Democrat leaders. To wit, bumbling Biden, Pelosi the putz, King Newsom, murderous Governor Cuomo, to name a few.

Terence,

TRTRT. BTW, how are you doing with your bamboo fibers?

Oh dear, I’m afraid we broke Taffy. Either that, or Taffy is channeling his inner Biden. Get well soon!
