Defends Bastards

Dear Editor:I passed the corner of 2nd Street and Downey Avenue and couldn't keep from chuckling when I saw Bastards. I love it! Then, thanks to the Patriot, I learned their history. Thank you, Bastards, for your sacrifices to keep us free and safe. A few people need to read the definition of "bastard" in the dictionary. From what I read in the article, Bastards met that definition. I guess the opposition would approve a strip joint if it were called "Heavenly." Good luck to Bastards - may your bar prosper and may it be a place where the bastards meet to renew friendship. Alice Vartanian Downey
