Re: “The Trolley Stop Market

Had a great Saturday morning breakfast here. Fresh home-made bread/toast, real hash browns, fresh veggies in my omelet. We'll be back.

Re: “Catching the Big One

When the Flyer gets body-slammed, I hit back. Not a good day to be trashing our journalism.

Re: “Catching the Big One

Oak, the "two" I was referring to were Arlington Pop and Thoughtful, who were disparaging journalists while commenting on a site where the material they are commenting on is created by journalists. Pop went on to claim that the Flyer wasn't journalism. Fuck him. He's gone. As for you, I find you relentlessly tiresome and pedantic. And also unnecessary. Grow another website on which to bloviate.

Re: “Catching the Big One

And yet, here you two are, day after day, commenting at a website where all the content is generated by journalists. Careful what you wish for.

Re: “Catching the Big One

Grove, the central point that you're missing is that 99 percent of these young folks did not make a decision to come here, illegally or otherwise. They were brought here by their parents, some as infants, and raised as Americans. Yes, they're "illegal" but they are caught in a hellish limbo and shouldn't be demonized. Send them "back" to a country they've never lived in? Or give them a legal path to gain citizenship by letting them pay in-state tuition and work to become productive citizens. That's the problem the DACA program is set up to solve. We need to quit blaming these young folks and start figuring out a way forward that is beneficial to all of us. These kids aren't the "enemy."
