You send out the five top news stories to me today and of the top five, not a mention of the police murder in Indio? Really? I'd think that would be number one! And you list a 2 acre fire as being of keen interest? Or best mom contest? Who is doing the editing there?

@vic: the patch as well as the other worthless rag, the desert sun promote mediocrity to boost ratings i.e. high school sports results, golf tourney, new cool ranch doritos, best mom of the desert etc. but perhaps this is a reflection of people's mentality here in the desert -uneducated, unsophisticated, silly simpletons etc. would be nice to have real news source in the valley. when you find one then please let me know
