Re: “A modest little proposal for revitalizing downtown

Mitch, I have had issues with City on occasion. But City moved to North Goodman Street BEFORE Village Gate. Don't question the paper's commitment to the City Core.

Re: “Whole Foods critics get lawyers

The mega Wegmans causes much of the current traffic problems on Monroe. Where were the critics then? Oh wait-- the Wegmans are the backers of the anti-Whole Foods group.

Re: “Fear? Anger? Hope?

This election is all about everyone's fear, unfortunately. Issues are ignored to placate the angst.

Re: “Footing the free college bill

I'm glad the free college tuition issue is being discussed. My thoughts (at no cost to you):
*Free community college simply makes high school a six-year experience, rather than the current four years.
* Free public higher education will make private school education even more elitist than it is already.
*Free college tuition presumes everyone needs a traditional higher education experience.
*Folks value what they have to work for. Paying tuition often makes students think a bit harder about what they are studying and why.

College is very expensive and that needs to change. But the change needs to include more and better education in the trades and less focus on college for all (leaving those who can't do it out in the cold.) And prospective college students should be provided with more data on what their chosen major offers in terms of jobs after graduation. Entering a journalism program at a traditional technical college, for example, will not offer many decent employment opportunities, while leaving students with a butt load of debt they can't afford to pay.

Re: “Midtown casino: 'It's not your city anymore'

Could we have a City story on the effects of the Seneca Buffalo casino? Or is it too soon?

Re: “Diverse schools? Survey shows the public may be ready

Eric, answer this question for me: How do you define diverse? If you meant to ask which district has the most kids with darker skin, then it's the City School District. Does that make it diverse ? Diverse means many different colors, sizes, financial situations, abilities, etc. That certainly does not apply to most, if not all of, of the school districts in the county.

If you are using diverse as a code word, which I think you are, then shame on you.

Re: “Diverse schools? Survey shows the public may be ready

I hope this is true. It would be such a boon to the school district.
