    Re: “To our CITY readers: changes, and an invitation

    To Harry Pearle and David4: we've written about the Strong expansion plans (which do indeed include additional space at the museum) several times since it was announced nearly two years ago. The full complex will include the museum expansion, the hotel, a residential building, and parking.

    Re: “Groups want a shift in city development

    To Alex White: The HomeWork feature is an ad produced by the Landmark Society of Western New York, not a story. City Newspaper donates the space for it, but we do not select the subject or write the text.

    Tom and Johnny, I'm calling a halt to this discussion between the two of you. That's not the purpose of our comment section. If you want to email your discussion back and forth please do it offline.

    Re: “Beer's best friend, part two

    From the editor: The older comments on this story were suspended this morning while we were verifying information about RG Brewery. The story has been amended to include the information about the owner's criminal case. Had we known about that case prior to publication, we would not have included the brewery in our round-up.

    To Fgf (and oh, how I wish your folks had the courage of your convictions and would use your real name): want to give me a recommended reading list of the conservative writers you admire?

    Re: “Trump, Roy Moore, and the tribes we cling to

    Ah, Cupid: I did cite one of my favorite, most-often-read journalists, the Wall Street Journal's Jerry Seib. The Journal is delivered to our home - and is read - 6 days a week. In the past, I've cited the Times' David Brooks. I read Ross Douthat and Bret Stephens regularly. And I'm going to hear the Journal's Peggy Noonan (speechwriter for President Reagan) on Friday at the University of Rochester.

    Re: “Debate gave closer look at personalities

    Sadly, this thread became a rather sophomoric sandbox fight, so we've deleted most of the comments. The purpose of our comments section is to encourage intelligent discussion of issues among adults, not provide a platform for personal insults.
