Re: “Pipe bombs, shootings, and Donald Trump

Mary Ann Towler....None of the comments in question were obscene, sexist, or derogatory to any religious, cultural, racial or gender grouping. They were merely political in nature and, regardless of what one may think of their intellectual content, or lack thereof, they were entertaining and thought-provoking. Which I happen to feel is supposed to be one of the purposes served by newspapers.. Given the usual paucity of comments to your paper's articles, you should be encouraging such comments, not censoring them.

Re: “Riverway plans head toward the start line

Those who wonder why this money couldn't be spent on actually helping people rather than on cosmetic window dressing need to understand that politician's can't get their egos stroked by having their names engraved on social programs. But they can get their names on big brass plaques that get fastened to physical structures, no matter how worthless.

City should start a pool on the date when the first "Rochester Millions" embezzlement arrest will be made.

Re: “Feedback 7/18

Funny how , after over a dozen posts commenting on Ms. Barnhart's excuses, political opinions and qualifications , one of her apologists suddenly wants to divert attention from Barnhart to the primary system. An interesting variation of the Trumpsters' tactic of "whataboutism" when, when losing the argument, they start responding with "What about Clinton", or "What about Obama".

Re: “Wilt pivots to Assembly run

Tom...Guess you missed that Morelle wasn't a LOSING candidate, which was the point of my comment. I've lost track of how many times White has crashed and burned running for office. In Barnhart's case, this is what, the fourth time she's gone down in flames politically? How many losses do you think it takes to classify someone as a "professional losing candidate". I'll give Wilt credit for starting at the bottom by first getting elected to local office before aiming higher. But with this assembly run, she looks like she's now in danger of joining White and Barnhart on the also-ran list.
As to those evil "career politicians", setting aside the fact that that merely means that that they have experience in their job and are re-elected by their constituents, at what point do you believe that a "new" candidate, once elected to office, becomes a nasty old "career politician". One term? Two? More? Does this mean that you favor substituting term limits for the right of the voters to elect the candidate of their choice?

Re: “Feedback 7/4

"A majority of Dems did not want Morelle, yet there he goes.". Yes, because he polled more votes than any of his several opponents. Welcome to representative democracy.

Re: “Wilt pivots to Assembly run

How many professional losing candidates can Rochester support? First Alex White. Then Rachel Barnhart. Now Robin Wilt.
