Tim Grobaty: Like to read? Long Beach ain't for you
The Press-Telegram's Rich Archbold tried valiantly to get his hometown interested in literature, reading during a Long Beach Reads One Book event in 2009.

Nice job avoiding the lead, Tim.
As you know, Long Beach has been a sanctuary city for illegal aliens for many years now, crippling our public schools with overcrowded classes attempting to function under an onslaught of non-literate Latinos, too many of whom wind up dropping out by the 11th grade.
You and your paper never reported on it when it was obvious that the Mayor's pro-illegal immigration policy was destroying our educational system as we knew it.
Now the chickens have come home to roost. You're living in a city full of illiterates, who have no interest in visiting and supporting book stores, and never will.
It's a little late to complain now, you silly old man.
Next up for you, finding a doctor that will see you within 2 months after you complain of a tumor growing on your neck. There's going to be a lot of Latinos in front of you, Timmy, even with good health insurance. Not enough doctors in this state to deal with the influx of illegals.

It will get much much worse, before it gets better.
They will be dropping out in droves now that summer school has been canceled, and there is no way to make up credit for graduation.
Why bother to go, if you fail a class or two (and a lot do more than that), can't make up the credit, and have no chance of a graduation?
I'm sure we will be seeing the welfare rolls swell for all the freebies from the ever shrinking taxpayers.
It's called causation, but they wont (or will never admit) the reason.

The funny thing is, the pro-illegal immigration stance of the Press Telegram is exactly the reason for their mass firings. Mexican immigrants don't read the Press Telegram, you idiots! In southern california, Univision now gets overall higher ratings than NBC!
I still don't get why these mega media corporations are advocating for a demographic that inevitably cripples them, if not close them down? And for what? To enrich a few Mexican billionaires laughing all the way to the bank? To overload our infrastructure so that there are lines going 50 feet out the door of the Harbor General Emergency room at 9 in the morning, full of people who are not going to pay one cent for the service?

Good news for the hoards of illegals is that no one expects them to amount to much. The UnionCrat politicians who run the City and the State could care less if the illegals can READ as long as they can learn to make a mark by any politician with D beside it's name on a ballot.

Grobaty saw all this happening, along with the rest of us, a long time ago. He's just too cowardly to bring up the matter. In any case, it's still kind of sad to see a fat old man give up on himself, and his community.
I remember a looong time ago, when he used to give a sht.
