To The Editors of L.A. Citybeat,

You either can feel sorry for me for not getting the joke or pity me for being a humorless shmuck who is compelled to waste everyone’s time writing with the facts when I find an animal being misrepresented — even facetiously. But after reading your most recent “Left Coast” cartoon I am helpless to stop myself from letting you and Ted Rall know that the California condors he mentions in the third panel of the strip are scavengers, not predators. They don’t swoop down on anything living, thus there is nothing to fear from them — never mind that are only a couple hundred left in the world and most of them are in captivity.
