Written on City Council Candidate Q&A: David Dupree, District 6 :

Maybe a little vague, but a native, obviously bright and educated, and plenty young. Best of all, he has lived in other places. And his claim that he is not in with the courthouse gang is very appealing at this particular time.

Written on City Council Candidate Q&A: Charles Frazier, District 6 :

A preacher, talk show ranter, and loan shark? You've got to be kidding. The guy's a bloodsucker.

Written on City Council Candidate Q&A: Daniel Brown, District 6 :

Sounds OK and sensible, but a little old, and maybe not enough education for my taste.

Written on “Death Panels”?:

There are plenty of sound objections to the public option, starting with cost, so it's annoying to see an otherwise sensible columnist take up the idiotic hue and cry about death panels. You approvingly point out that Medicare already provides voluntary end of life counseling, but then you turn right around and warn us against the "heavy hand of government." Which is it? And by the way, what's the difference to the patient between the heavy hand of government and the heavy hand of insurance companies? Peace.

Written on The Rep faces potential legal troubles:

It won't do any good - apparently Stacey Campfield's constituents leave their brains at home when they go to the polls. But that was a shrewd lick to point out his hypocrisy in buying cheap properties next to preservation zones. But you shouldn't have joined in the hue and cry against Christopher Eatherly. Campfield broke no law when he rented him a room. His fault lay in evicting him. If he were a man and a Christian, he would have defied Schree Pettigrew. Where is Mr. Eatherly supposed to live? The registration law is supposed to protect minors; it's not intended as an aid to vigilantes and demagogues. And that's just what Ms. Pettigrew became when she brought the matter up. Never mind her merits relative to Mr. Campfield. She deserved to lose that election.
