Love to see the press get out and interview people on various sides of this issue.

Recently blogged on this:

TV News – Interview people from various sides of any issue?

How are bars and restaurants holding up on the Olympic Peninsula since proof of vaccination restrictions began on September 4th?

Let’s hear more from restaurant/tavern owners and patrons.

Alternative Media

We are big fans of Independent/alternative media here at Oak Bay Starfish.

Alternative media is good about keeping an active comment section up & running. There’s always something to learn or think about from the points others make in the comment section.

Local papers have stripped away all comments from past articles, and removed the opportunity to post comments to new articles.

Various newspapers in the Puget Sound area have gone with this trend.

Suppressing comments, getting away from asking questions related to public policy and telling us they need more support from subscription and advertising sales.

Got it.


My personal preference would be to let business people make business decisions.

Let customers support or walk away from the businesses of their choosing.
