Time for another mixtape of stories we wanted to pass along to you. Have you also read something you’d like for more San Diegans to read about our region or how others end up dealing with similar issues? Send me a link and a short explanation, and your pick could show up on next week’s post.
Here’s what we read this week:
• Scott Lewis, CEO, tweeted about “Jon Fleischman’s FlashReport is little-read but much-feared“:

More from Dillon: “It’s possibly one way to zombify redevelopment.”

• Sandy Coronilla, investigative intern, on “Basic police work ignored in autistic patient’s suspicious death“:
This is a chilling story of the circumstances surrounding the death of a man with autism, Van Ingraham, from La Mesa who had lived in a state developmental center since he was 8 years old. The investigation pinpoints the failure by the Department of Developmental Services’ police force to properly identify the scene as a crime scene. Ingraham’s story is but a micro view of a much larger societal issue about the value we assign to vulnerable populations of people. Great read!
• Me on “Mexico Travel: A Super-Foodie’s Tijuana Tour“:
This food tour of Tijuana, with stops at Misión 19, La Querencia and multiple food trucks, made me really hungry. Did the story miss any spots you would include?
