Written on The Win: The Untold Story of 2013 Seems, Too Often, to be One of Gamesmanship:

I wonder how many of your readers moved here from somewhere they were moving away from, bringing with them their own motives or solutions.

If Rikki supports it, I see a big red flag.

Written on 'Atlas Shrugged' Bores the Audience Into Submission:

The power of Ayn Rand devotees has impressed some Hollywood distribution executives, who took note of the hefty $5,640 per-theater average scored by “Atlas Shrugged: Part 1” during its opening weekend.

“People are hungry for what these characters are saying,” he said. “They’re telling the government, ‘Don’t entitle me with your gifts and your involvement in my life, because there’s a price I’ll pay for that. Just leave me alone. Let me hang onto my life and pursue my passions and rational self-interest. That’s what will benefit society.’ ”

...business has been brisk enough for producers Harmon Kaslow and John Aglialoro to expand from 299 theaters to 425 this weekend and to 1,000 by the end of the month. They don’t have enough film prints to fill all the orders.

Written on Burchett Seeks $80,000 Raise?! Not Really...:

Hunley wants to keep the fee offices like they are so they can be used as political machines with staff and money to promote the candidates he has control over.

Written on Henry:

Rikki, I remember the media reporting that the authorities concluded there may have been a simple assault days before the boy was taken to the hospital.

Sheriff Jones of the KSCO also stated "Although drugs were involved, our investigation has revealed he did not go there to purchase drugs," Jones said.

"No trauma is observed at the time of the autopsy," states the report from the Knox County Medical Examiner's office. "Final determination of the cause and manner of death is pending further investigation and ancillary studies."

The accuracy of your statement that the boy “died last week after a month-long struggle to survive a drug-related assault,” is not the conclusion of the authorities. This looks to be a simple drug overdose and making these types of drugs legal could only increase the number of young deaths from overdose.

It is good to see you have a conservative side in your statement, “I am also an advocate of free markets and personal liberty.” Unless by free markets you advocate unfettered drug dealing, and by personal liberties, you mean the right to abuse yourself freely with substance abuse.

I can also agree with your statement, “I do advocate rethinking our country's drug policies.” The laws should be stricter.

Are you kidding, legalize Methamphetamines? You really need to cut back. Apparently the Metro Pulse does not drug test its writers?

You want more people to die from casual drug overdose to save money on the war on drugs and to produce revenues with drug taxes. Aren’t people more important than money to you?

The daily paper reported a drug overdose in this situation, and made no mention of a drug-related assault. Did I miss a new announcement by local law enforcement? If there is some new information, I would appreciate a link.
