Re: “Our choice for Rochester mayor: Lovely Warren

In a clearly biased article it's evident that City Newspaper has failed to be truthful to its readers. Lovely Warren is hardly the choice for Mayor. Her policies(?) are failure, her administration has been seeped in scandal and questionable ethics (Much more than the article mentions), and the city is clearly unsafer now than it ever has been. This isn't to mention her clearly obvious ploy to avoid any real discussions or a debate where she won't obtain a favorable outcome.
Now, don't get me wrong, the city was on a downward spiral of crime when Sheppard was Police Chief, but perhaps he's learned some new techniques during retirement.
As for Ms. Barnhardt, the less said and considered the better. The city needs a celebrity politician like it needs another scandal in the Mayor's office. Or, perhaps we're looking forward to our very own snarky tweeting official.
The city needs a mature and steady hand to lead it and that's what Mr. Sheppard offers in my opinion.
P.S. Shame on City newspaper for injecting race relations into the Mayoral race. By implying that James Sheppard is the house boy of the white 'power brokers' they have firmly taken a step backwards in journalism (Not to mention that if anyone is in the pockets of the 'power brokers' it is clearly Lovely who does everything and anything that the Governor wants). It is a weak journalist that employs cheap 'hot buttons' to create buzz around their articles. Do yourselves a favor and write about real issues and facts that affect the citizens of this city.

Re: “College isn't for everyone, and that's okay

Nice article and very true. Instead of bowing to the whims of the 'educated elite' it is important to point out that many can make a very good living without the benefit of 'formal' education.
However, that doesn't mean to dismiss the importance of continuing education. Some of us react better to short bursts of school instead of the regimentation of a full curriculum.
The real point is, like the article says, is to not be afraid of failure or success. Continually keep trying new things.
Anything worth achieving is produced by working for it, not waiting for the winds of change to bring it.
We won't even get into the point of taking out unnecessary loans to finance an education that is ill thought out.

Re: “Museum of Play inducts four games into Video Game Hall of Fame

Donkey Kong was insanely popular in bars. People would line up their quarters on the console for their turn to play it along with PacMan. And, those were the days when the consoles were designed with flat tops so players could rest their drinks on top while playing.

Re: “Warren wins Dems’ committee votes

This story just points out even further how corrupt and disingenuous the Political parties have become. Warren obviously has a number of people in her pocket to ensure her endorsement from the Democratic committee from her days on City Council. She got the job that way and they are hoping they can keep her in that way.
Like Hillary, they feel it's good practice to eliminate any fair competition to achieve their goal. After all, the people are going to vote along party lines regardless of who or how inept the candidate may be.
It's sad, the people should speak with their heads and not their hearts but that isn't the case anymore.
Another term of incompetence is ahead unless the people speak.
