First off, I do not write the comments that people post on this blog. I try to delete those that are lurid, obscene or make vicious allegations that I don't know to be true. But sometimes I hit the wrong button and even those get posted. If that happens, let me know (tell me exactly which comment on which thread, please!) and I will take action.
The pieces that I write on here are often exactly what we print in the newspaper and in every case, they meet the same standards. That's not to say that everything on here winds up in the paper, of course, but much of it does.
Though a few people seem offended when I post silly little tidbits, like Don Cassin's bumper stickers, I'm going to go right on doing it. I think Cassin was funny and so was Mayor Art Ward's response. So I wrote it up. I won't apologize for thinking that humor has a place on any blog.
Finally, if you don't like the comments, don't read them. If you don't like the blog, don't read it. But telling me I'm an idiot, however true it may be, won't get me to change what I'm doing. For that, you need to make a reasoned arguments, not just toss insults.
