What They Said 

About "ID, Please" and the problems with the Voter ID Bill:

"The sky is falling, the sky is falling! NOT! I for one am glad a state-issued ID is required for voting. I can think of nothing better to ensure the integrity of an election. At least we will know for sure the person voting is the person on the voter's list."

SayItAintSo

About "The Help: Schools Have Lots of It These Days" and the abundance of education consulting firms:

"Two questions: A) Why should anybody have faith in local governments when the decision makers don't have any?

B) Just how competent is the contracting system within local governments when apparently they are too dumb to know how to do anything?"

About "Skaters Shun Helmets and Warnings" and the ongoing situation with the newly opened skate park:

"The city spent well over $500,000 for this incredible park to be built and how do a number of skaters thank the city? They give them the collective finger by blowing off the rules, and next thing you know skateboarders are in the media looking like a bunch of spoiled ungrateful brats."

Comment of the Week:

From the BruceV blogpost "Happy Holidays, Comrades" and a Fox News commentator's notion that the Muppets are a threat to America:

"Piggy and Kermit advocate mixed-species coupling. I think we all know what Bert and Ernie have been up to all these years, but has there ever been a television character more gay than Big Bird? ... Fox is merely pulling back the curtains on a liberal conspiracy that's been destroying America's youth for the last 40 years, and about time, I say." — jeff
