We generally select one reader comment to highlight as our Comment of the Week. On topics that elicit strongly divided opinions, however, we sometimes choose two comments to avoid appearing to favor one side. So it was for our April 19 article, "." The El Cerrito Planning Commission voted 6-0 Wednesday to grant a use permit for the popular chain to move into the building at San Pablo Avenue and Carlson Boulevard now occupied by , whose lease is not being renewed. The story prompted several comments, including our two Comments of the Week, from GT and John Stashik:
Boo! This is the east bay where we have authentic Mexican food. The last thing we need is another chain restaurant. The design of the entire Plaza is a disgrace, catering to giant corporations rather than being a nice space for the people.
That would be a plus for El Cerrito. The chain is a cut above other fast food operators and quite successful.
- Editor's note: We welcome reader comments on our articles. The Comment of the Week doesn't necessarily reflect the view of El Cerrito Patch. It's chosen according to what we believe will be of general reader interest. For other examples from our Comment of the Week series, please click .
