commented on What Do Readers Really Want from Their Newspapers?
I've read nearly every Goldy story here and on HorsesAss. Nearly always think they are worth reading.
I just don't want to see Stranger writers complaining that the media won't cover something. Because the Stranger is the media. So write about the crap that they think needs covering.

commented on Is It Fair to Ask Mitt Romney About Mormon Sex Abuse Coverups?
A stake is closer to a parish than a Catholic diocese. Perhaps y'all ought to actually consult actual Mormons. A diocese generally has 250,000 to 1,000,000 members among all its congregations. A stake is around 5,000.
And is there any allegations of abuse regarding the LDS church in Boston while Romney was president? If so, the question is valid. But you can't say "well, catholics have sex abuse problems and they're a religion and so is LDS, so we need to know if Romney stopped molesting Catholic children or not."

commented on Have You Heard About the Alleged Twitter Book Payola Scandal?
The books they gave away were promoted as sponsored giveaways. What they didn't do was reveal that the interviews on twitter were promoted, except on the web site. But it was all listed on the web site.
And why the fuck do you care about telegraphing what you are going to review? When did the stranger become an intelligence agency?
