Calypso Imaging Review

I do not like their customer service. My "new scale" rating [Link] 40

My review of Calypso Imaging, 256 Potrero St., Santa Cruz, CA 95060 (831) 460-2260

Over a week ago I dropped off a roll of E6 film for processing. Early this week they called me to tell me they were not developing film this week and I would have to wait until NEXT week.

I am an analog shooter and was very dissapointed. I cannot waste my time with a lab that offers such poor customer service.

I went back and picked up my film and sent it elsewhere. Yes, they had excuses. What they do not have is my business.

Anti-Israel Protest at SJSU

Anti-Israel Protestors

Protesters have been on campus protesting what they are alleging are atrocities being committed by Israel against Palestinian civilians.

  • Israel had been under rocket attack for eight years.
  • Recently Hamas has been firing missiles from Palestinian population centers in Gaza, using Palestinian civilians as human shields.
  • The Hamas rockets have been targeted at Israeli cities hoping to kill civilians.
  • I wonder how long we would have tolerated rockets being targeted at our cities (like San Jose) before we would respond militarily?

The death of Palestinian civilians is a tragedy. I totally defend the right of the protesters to protest. I just think they're wrong to blame only Israel and not blame Hamas.
