Re: “Growing Their Own

Is this paid advertising? Sure reads like it.

Re: “Guest Commentary

Fraser, you are clearly not an attorney so you may not know that even foreign nationals who enter this country illegally have legal rights. Among those rights is the right to claim refugee status. Congress created an expedited return policy for immigrants who are citizens of contiguous nations: Canada and Mexico. This was an alteration of the policy that applies to other nations' citizens. They may all be the same to you ("peons") but under the laws and Constitution of the United States, which conservatives like to brandish like a weapon but rarely actually read, these people do indeed have legal rights. The Tea Party-controlled House of Representatives has refused to alter the law to implement expedited return, and also refused (so far) to fund the processes needed to expedite their hearings and pay for their care. I'm sure you would be happy to have them chained together and marched into the desert to meet their fate, but at least so far we haven't implemented a death penalty for undocumented immigration and even if we did THEY WOULD STILL HAVE LEGAL RIGHTS. Get it? You might read up on this and educate yourself. http://www.vox.com/2014/6/16/5813406/expla…

Re: “Guest Commentary

Fraser, I know everything I need to know about you by your use of the word, "peons." It's obviously too subtle a point for you to grasp that you, like the racists of whom Councilman Kozachik speaks, view these people as lesser humans, and thus entitled to less legal protection that you are. No, they are not citizens. But they are fully entitled to the protection of the laws governing their treatment that the Congress of the United States has passed.

Re: “The Skinny

So much to be offended by, including the fact that the Superintendent of Public Instruction does not know the past tense of "drag."

Re: “Historic House

The mosque could not have moved into this building before the fall of 1978. Before then, several law students rented it and lived there. We studied for the bar together there until late July 1978. After the bar, I moved to Phoenix. The next time I came back, in 1979, the mosque had moved into the building.

Re: “Guest Commentary

Yes, Kelly planned his escape into stardom really well, except that his wife was shot by a lunatic and he will be responsible for her care and comfort for the rest of her life. And you really want to criticize Gabby for waiting to receive a pension when she will never be able to work again? I think you can do better than that.

Re: “Editor's Note

There is a command in InDesign that uses the m key. I've accidentally added "m" to documents by mistyping this command. As you said, mistakes happen. I agree that the Weekly is remarkably well-edited, particularly given today's rip and post editorial environment. You can't read a single article in Salon without seeing a typo, and even the vaunted NYT has had some significant bloopers on their website. I forgive you.
