Re: “Monroe Dems get a taste of victory

All of the complaining about someone not being a "real Democrat" reminds me of the Republicans -- any Republican who is the least bit moderate or willing to work across the aisle is accused of being a "Republican in Name Only" (RINO).

Re: “The nation under Trump

"... President Trump blamed "mental illness" rather than guns ..." I'm certainly not absolving the guns of any blame, but in this case, it does look like the shooter had a history of very significant mental health issues. So Trump, in this case, wasn't totally wrong.

Re: “Best Food & Drink 2017

So what do you propose that this publication do, when California Rollin' was voted the best sushi? Ignore the results? Make up their own results? (By the way, I don't eat sushi so I'm not making any judgment about the quality of sushi at any of the nominees.)

Re: “The complicated path to teacher diversity

Kathryn, I'm quite sure that city teachers (even beginning ones) make well over $35,000 a year.

Re: “Debate gave closer look at personalities

My deleted comment was not a personal insult at all -- just wondering where the notion came from that any primary challenge of an incumbent was somehow inappropriate or insulting the the incumbent.

Re: “The long, long road for Cobbs Hill Village

According to the article, the "most vulnerable citizens" (current residents) opposed this development proposal.

Re: “Rust never sleeps

OK, so "Rusted Root is one of the festival's top draws, pulling in about 6,000 to 7,000 devoted fans each time." Yet the author is very VERY down on Rusted Root, and it sounds like for no other reason than he doesn't really like them. And he quotes some other local musicians who concur with his opinion. Which is all fine. But when it comes right down to it, whether someone likes certain music or not is a matter of taste. And if many people like a certain type of music, for better or worse, that carries a lot of weight, more than a minority of people who say they are tired of them. Especially since we're talking about one night of a what, 9 night festival with a different band or bands every night? Why begrudge a festival for booking a band with a large and enthusiastic following, for one night out of a week-plus long festival?
