On More accountability coming to comments
I think that this, overall, is a good decision. I think it will definitely help with the awful discussions that so frequently go on. I know it's probably too late for this sort of input to matter, but it seems to me that the most successful and user friendly way that I have seen newspapers control access to their sites is by offering a certain amount of article views per month for free and then forcing the frequent users to subscribe. I'm skeptical that offering some articles for free and then completely restricting other articles to subscribers will be a successful strategy, but I guess time will tell.
On Diversity class draws national attention
The level of ignorance in some of these comments is astounding and a perfect example of why these classes are needed.
"wow, who would disagree, that our kids deserve to have both sides heard."
$10 says this lady wants creationism to have equal time in Biology as well.
becomeaware, patriotsal, and wislady have their heads buried so far in the sand that their posts read like satire. The only thing keeping it from being hilarious is how many of them are out there.
On Considering the value of editorials
“Sorry, but there is no evidence that strong opinions are hurting newspaper readership…,” Then you're not looking hard enough. Mr. Peck, I corresponded with you when I canceled my subscription and let you know that the editorials in the paper were exactly the reason. Do you ever survey your departing subscribers to find out why they're leaving? The editorials page has outlived its usefulness.
On Retire now, teachers union advises
We had a great public education system when I was growing up. I had great public school teachers. They had secure jobs. My kids will not be so fortunate because a few people in this state would rather pass a brick than see their property taxes go up $1.
On Parents hesitant about NRA armed schools proposal
You can't take our guns away because that will take away our ability to rise up against a well-armed government. Instead we should place armed government employees in every classroom. What?
On Highway 59 near Milton closed until tomorrow morning
"tell me again why roundabouts are so wonderful? Oh, they have them in Europe.. yeah.. I hear things are going really well over there."
This right here is an attitude that will hold us down as a country for a long time. Roundabouts save lives. Lots of lives. But since they're used in Europe the fools here would rather scoff at the increased safety and keep seeing people die. This sort of ignorance is fatally dangerous.
On UPDATE: Authorities allowing ethanol tank truck spill to continue
"Roundabouts: A solution to a problem nobody had" Roundabouts nearly solve the problem of fatal accidents at intersections. That something you want to scoff at?
"although severity was low." Is all you need to know. Woody, though, would rather see people die in order to save half a second on passing through an intersection.
