Re: “Barack Obama’s $400K: dimming hope for change

Kathryn - You're right, I can't imagine why two top Democrats in Warren and Sanders would criticize him at all... It's not like he's been anti-Wall Street his entire career or anything....

As Tom and others have said, he's a hypocrite now. You can't chastise Wall Street while holding your hand out to get a big fat check from them.

Re: “Film review: 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'

***SPOILER ALERT***


"A mostly standalone adventure, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" barely bothers to fit itself into the extended universe Marvel Studios has now spent 15 films creating..."

I wouldn't exactly say barely now. I mean, the huge bombshell that Stan Lee cameos aren't Stan Lee cameos at all was alone pretty mega. Then there's tons of other tie ins that I'm not going to spoil, being that spoiling Stan Lee was enough...

Re: “Feedback 4/26

Rochester Musician - You're actually reading your link incorrectly. Your link is "Annual number of gun deaths". That number includes suicides by firearms, which actually has a higher total than homicides by firearms. It's the stat the anti-gun crowd chooses to use when trying to make their argument. It's a bigger/scarier looking number than the actual ~8.5k homicides per year by firearms.

Re: “Feedback 4/26

Gary P - You're kind of all over the place with your ranting, but I'll just say do 5 seconds of research on google before you drop some nonsense like 10k+ women are murdered by guns every year. That's not even close.

Secondly, I'm looking at this UN map of the female per capita homicide rate, and we're in the same category as every civilized (non former USSR) country in Europe.

Thirdly, when you have time, try reading a real study. It might open your eyes to actual facts, or not. It's a choice to be educated by reality, or to just stick to political talking points.

Re: “Whole Foods hearing set

As Cera said, I've never understood the big draw to Wegmans. Do people like spending more when they shop? Using coupons (suzysaverwny is a good place to start if you're new to the coupon/rebates game), and with Tops having actual sales, I manage to feed myself for appx $20 week. And this will probably garner a bunch of thumbs down, but here goes. No, it's not crap food, and no I'm not obese.... As the argument seems to constantly go, "unhealthy food is cheaper than healthy food". It's really not if you understand unit pricing. I'm sure at a place like Whole Foods, yes, healthy food costs more, but do they even have unhealthy food there? lol. They cater to a niche crowd that's willing to be ripped off.

Re: “For Parcel 5: a theater topped by apartments

TJ - Disappointing to hear about the Jackals(2300 avg attendance) , but not overly surprising. Even populated cities like Norfolk(2984), Atlanta(4738), and Cincinnati(4214) have problems filling seats for their ECHL teams.
