As usual, you assume a great deal about me, without actually knowing anything about me. But it seems that's par for your course. Much easier to revel in your uninformed assumptions than to actually seek knowledge. I don't think I've seen you at any volunteer events, or contributing to the general good of the community, though I've been involved in many such things over the last few decades. Just where you can rant and rail against perceived challenges to your pre-formed agenda, where you can get the attention that seems so important to you. No concrete solutions, nor workable suggestions, but a great deal of blather and spew.
BTW - I don't own an armchair, nor do I watch much TV. But then, facts have never been all that important to you, have they?
Whatever makes you happy, I guess.

Oh, Sue. Complaining about "name calling", then flinging more of the same. I realize, as many others do, that trying to engage in a reasonable conversation with you is futile, but as I said before, we are tired of the vitriol and constant character assassination you find so satisfying. It's said that those who scream the loudest often have much to hide. Instead of trying to constructively improve whatever ails our school system (and yes, it has flaws like most others), it seems you find that slinging mud and outrageous, unfounded accusations is much easier, and maybe after all it's the attention you crave. I just wish you and your few compatriots (wait...did I call you a "name"?) could see your way to a more constructive and effective manner of dialogue. Hope springs eternal...

Thrown out, never heard. Same result, based on same failings.
As for your accusation of name calling....if it walks & talks like a duck, well, you know the rest. Now I suppose you'll say I'm calling you a duck. Hilarious.
Actually, I have attended a school board meeting. More than one in fact. I was embarrassed for you and your ilk who have nothing to add to the discussion but unproven accusations and wild conjecture. But, at least I was paying attention. Your "team" member on the board seemed quite preoccupied with his cell phone...

You, too seem to have a problem with those who disagree with you. Your ill-fated challenge to the sale of Eagle was - wait for it... thrown out of court. THREE times! Yet you continue to whine and concoct conspiracy theories in an effort to smear people who have not been proved to be corrupt. Take your own advice, and move on. Many of us are tired of your diatribes and unproven insinuations. Either prove your accusations conclusively, or try and focus your considerable anger on self-improvement.
BTW, your defamatory smear of the President of the United States is telling. Again - no real proof, but evidently it makes you feel good to rail against someone who doesn't look like you'd like him to. Apply your exact same words to the previous holder of that office, and you'd scream "treason!!". Give us all a break.

Gerry: LOL. But I'm sure that was done in the utmost of good taste. And..it was heterosexual in nature, as far as we know, which i guess meets Bill's standards for acceptable...

Yes. Build a wall around GP so all these "undesirables" don't sully the immaculate society that the Pointes are. Muffy and Biff are just SO INCENSED.

Why do you care so much what OTHER people do in their bedroom or in their love lives? When did this become up for public consent/approval? People are people, plain and simple, and should be treated equally in all aspects of their lives. Who they choose to love is simply NONE OF ANYONE ELSE'S DAMN BUSINESS. This equating same sex love to bestiality is utterly ridiculous, has no basis in anything factual, and is merely a sick ploy to demonize those who are different from you. A pretty desperate grasp at a very weak straw...

Jackie: Yes, there used to be a fountain at the Downtown Farmington Center. It was poorly maintained, and subject to vandalism fairly often. It became somewhat of an eyesore after a while. Nice idea, expensive to build and maintain properly.

Amen to the idea of businesses staying open later in the evening! Problem is, people are so used to the fact that the sidewalks are rolled up after dark that when a few places try extended hours, very few people know about it. Mentobe needs to try again...it takes some time for people's habits to change, but if they could hang in there I think it would eventually pay off. Maybe a coupon on the back of theatre tickets, or a discount for presenting the stubs. Schedule a singer or poetry reading late night - something.

Aint it the truth? Parades are supposed to be FUN, not an opportunity for every Tom, Dick and Harriet who wants to march down the center of the street to serve up their own brand of propaganda. March, protest, evangelize if you wish, but leave it out of the parade, and put more FUN things in there. The kids (and their mommies and daddies) would appreciate it.
