Sound Off use to be great in the Sun News. It kept the Council and Mayor somewhat honest. Or at the very least having to come up with an excuse for crap like the 'Red Light Cameras" etc. As time went on many very intelligent lively discussion were brought up.
Whistle Blowers,and just plain folks could place their opinions without worry of repercussions.

This newspaper is a "puppet" of the City Government and I'm sure pressure was put on them to get rid of the Column as it was. To many hard to answer items were being discussed in this open forum to be comfortable for the Council and Mayor.
By replacing it with Face Book made sure there were no Whistle Blowers because of the Format you could no longer be immune from reappraisals.

By making it very difficult to get to the original Sound off they pretty much go rid of all those pesky questions that kept coming up about the honesty of the regime in power.

What we really need in Las Cruces is a Newspaper that is now a "Progressive Puppet" of the City Council.

THEtopix free-for-all commenting is open to trolling, but does offer a platform to speak with more anonymity. THEfacebook is too invasive to those who value privacy. Will they switch to www.disqus.com like some other community papers around the country? It is probably safer for readers.
