Back to Bakersfield

August 30, 1992

Your article was narrow and misleading. This lovely city is versatile, interesting and multifaceted. We have some fine gourmet restaurants with reasonable prices. There is a large variety of the kind of cultural experiences we like to have access to (and we only have to drive for 10-15 minutes).

But don't tell anyone. Keep printing articles about $30 motel rooms where you sit around and watch "I Love Lucy" reruns. Be sure you emphasize the cheap greasy spoons. Talk a lot about ramshackle beer halls and dusty flea markets. If you write about what it's really like, people might get the wrong idea and move here.
