Years ago? For crying out loud, get over it. And if it was "years ago," then I guess you have not read any of her books. That's your loss.  (Sep 8, 2008 | post #38)

This was a fun column. I believe Susan does herself a disservice with the comparison to Caribou Barbie, but what the heck, Sarah needs the break. Very glad to see Susan (Susie?) with such an amusing piece in the Sunday rag.  (Sep 7, 2008 | post #25)

Waterboarding does not fit the definition of torture

This guest commentary is an insult to any reasonable person's intelligence. Slice your baloney any way you like, Mr. Roeten, you aren't going to have many takers.  (Aug 12, 2008 | post #8)

Who to blame in Parkside mess? How about commissioners?

Those who dismiss the efforts and accomplishments of the tree watchers ought to reflect on where we'd be without them having brought so much attention to this matter. Civic leaders weren't doing it, the press wasn't doing it, so these folks stepped up and did what they could to get this stinking deal square in the public eye. And now that the public knows about it, we face the amazing circumstance of county and city officials having to come to grips with the broad sentiment against the deal. It may be time for the tree watchers to move on to a new course of action, but minimizing their efforts is as ignorant as it is arrogant.  (Aug 10, 2008 | post #161)

I am impressed by the persistence of this group, but I have to ask where are our elected officials? Why do these folks have to keep a vigil when the county or city government could take care of things? For goodness sake, is there not one true leader in the courthouse or the city building?  (Aug 7, 2008 | post #1)

Coleman not deserving of all these personal attacks

The depth of ignorance displayed in this post is truly astonishing (and the Portland claim is fiction). But the notion of Parkside providing beneficial or necessary "eyes on the park" is too ridiculous to let stand unaddressed. In case you hadn't noticed, the park is in the shadow of the County Courthouse and City Building, next to the fire station, around the corner form the police station, and spitting distance from the jail. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a safer place in town. Asheville needs those "eyes on the park" like it needs more spineless political leaders. Southern B, you are certainly entitled to your opinions, but lies and distortions do not reflect well on you or aid the discussion.  (Jul 31, 2008 | post #28)

Coleman not deserving of all these personal attacks

In this case four corrupt public officials -- Wanda Greene, Michael Frue, Carol Peterson and Bill Stanley -- helped a prominent local businessman and campaign contributor -- Stewart Coleman -- obtain property that should not have been sold. Once discovered, the public officials began to back away from the mess, and the businessman proceeded with an extortion attempt. Stewart Coleman is fully deserving of the community's contempt for his bullying arrogance. If he has plans for projects beyond Parkside, he is foolish to think they would be well received or even allowed if he persists in his assault on community coffers. All four public officials should be the subjects of withering questions and attacks from the community, and for the life of me I don't see how they're getting off so easy. Greene, Frue, Peterson and Stanley are all as dirty as can be on this, and they ALL should be shown the door.  (Jul 31, 2008 | post #11)

Dunn drops out of county commission race

Does it make any difference? The candidate field for the County Commission race is pitifully weak for both parties. Not a single candidate is impressive, and most are pretty terrible. It's sad.  (Jul 24, 2008 | post #3)

City animal rules meeting draws crowd

Why the immediate focus on "liability, " as if someone should automatically bear responsibility when a bee stings a person? And what "heavily populated areas" are you worried about? Most of the city is not very densely populated, so it's difficult for me to see what your concern would be. This seems a terribly alarmist post.  (Jul 9, 2008 | post #5)
