Fun With Comments

Have you been to lately? If you haven't, you're missing out on some really ... um, interesting conversations in the comments sections.

Some gems from the last week:

• After Jim Nintzel took to The Range, our daily dispatch, to analyze some of Sarah Palin's statements about John McCain during her Tucson appearance last week, a commenter with the moniker Rick554 chimed in: "McCain's promise to stop working with Dems is a moot point, since Dems quit working with ANYONE else since they seized power. I might just vote for McCain on that promise alone!"

That led to this response from Tedski: "The Dems 'seized power'? Wow. Missed the footage of that coup d'etat."

• Tom Danehy's column last week on drugs (a topic, oh goody, he reprises this week) led to a number of responses, some well-thought-out, and others ... well, like this one from a user named b: "I always used to enjoy your columns. Not that I always agreed with you, but I celebrated your right to your opinions. NOW, you have shown your 'true colors,' your ignorance, your lack of experience, your lack of what really is. ... You seem to need a shot of 'self-esteem,' given the fact that you have never tried THC. You need to further your fragile ego to satisfy 'someone' (sorry, don't know who or why) to make yourself a bona fide, acceptable journalist. ... No one wants to hear you anymore. You are a POSER, and now WE all know it. You never went through the fire, YOU KNOW NOTHING WORTH HEARING ABOUT!"

OK then! Join in the fun at
