...no longer a first-time commenter

long-time reader is, because he thinks.
Jan 12 long-time reader commented on Owner of Magnolia Gym Says RVs Are Hurting His Business.
@11, your straw man is too ridiculous to even entertain as having the basic outlines of a man's form.
Jan 9 long-time reader commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Stamping Out "Just My Preference" Gays.
As a paleface hetero cisdude, I have nothing to add but a touch of proofreading: "Pushback" is a noun; "Push back" is a phrasal verb.
Jan 3 long-time reader commented on I, Anonymous.
I think y'all got trolled but good.
Dec 28, 2016 long-time reader commented on Saddam Hussein Was Too Focused on Writing His Novel to Run Iraq in 2003.
That's "vial", not "vile". Although it was a vile accusation, the words are not the same number of syllables.
Dec 23, 2016 long-time reader commented on Police Reports Illustrated: Clean Clothes Cause Crime.
@6, if your statistics are true, then we should be more afraid of unarmed people than people with canes. Which sounds fair.
Dec 16, 2016 long-time reader commented on The Year the Music Died.
Bernie Worrell.
Dec 15, 2016 long-time reader commented on Oyster Factory, A Very Important Film About Japan's Aging Labor Crisis.
@1, did you not read the whole article? By his use of the n-word, I think Mr. Mudede made it perfectly clear that he considers the xenophobia to be racism.
Dec 14, 2016 long-time reader commented on The Wonders of Working Out with Weed.
An intoxicated cyclist is mostly a danger to him or herself.

Comparing cycling to driving a car is the height of false equivalency.
Dec 8, 2016 long-time reader commented on Portland to Tax CEOs Who Earn Way More Money Than Their Rank-And-File Employees.
If your CEO works 100 times as hard as your average worker, fire those workers. Otherwise, you need to drastically reform your compensation structure.
Dec 7, 2016 long-time reader commented on Dan Savage's Open Letter to Paul Allen on Lidding I-5, Righting a Wrong, and Leaving a Legacy.
Great letter, notwithstanding that pointless, tacky dig at hippies and "sensitive millennials". Isn't sensitivity a laudable characteristic, anyway? You're being *insensitive*, and that reflects poorly on you.
