Hey Nom: "Hateful egomaniac?" Me? Wow. Coming from an irrelevant former politico, that's quite a compliment. For the record, I'm NOT on the editorial board. And speaking of "sickening" agendas, how about you using this account to prop up your own races as if you were a disinterested third party? I mean, really ...

Y'Town: Actually, Judge Shirley J. Christian handed out the sentence in February. As the judges will attest, we normally do a good job of listing them, much to some consternation. In longer, more complicated stories, sometimes we are too hasty while attempting to maintain some brevity.

Wow. So, the only media to actually report what really happened on Friday (we were there so we just reported what happened) also shows up Sunday to see if there is any public fallout (we were there so we just reported what happened) and for that effort gets attacked by the same old complaining do-nothings.
And why? Mostly because some combination of Education_Voter, nojimbo and NoBS couldn't tear themselves away from sitting in front of their computers and complaining long enough to DO anything but sit in front of their computers and complain.
Petitions? Protests? Sign making? Petition recall? No, that's for someone else to do. We'll just sit here where it's cozy and complain about everything. But if anyone actually does go out and do anything, don't worry, we'll be the first to complain!
That's one way to define 3,800 in combined comments ...

Pookie: Actually, you did prove today that "stupidity and ignorance know no boundaries." And if you post such racist "dialect" again you'll be banned. Your "if just one person ..." rationalization is dim-witted, at best. There's no room for it here. All you did was succeed in making yourself look foolish. Thanks to all who brought it to our attention.

If you post offensive, racist "dialect" again, you'll be banned.

Seriouslee: Your point is confusing. The items you are reading about, discussing and downloading are here at a news media site. People get information and then release it to the media to deliver to a larger audience. Some documents make their way from official channels; other times non-media folks have access and turn to the media to get them released. We rely both on whistle-blowers and our own investigations for our stories.

I just got off the phone with a self-proclaimed life-long Democrat who objected to our play of Kasich on the front page today – we're so pro-Rebublican and pro-Kasich it's sickening, I'm told – and wandered here only to see RepublicanRick's message. And with a name like RepublicanRick, you know he's not biased, either. If everyone who is biased thinks we have a bias, I guess we're doing something right.

Walter: My reading comprehension is great. A) It was fun tweaking you; B) I was not going to guess whether the issue was rust, poor driving, etc. Let's just all agree that two years is a rather short test period. Get back to us at year 13.
And lighten up your negative mood! I think the rain has everyone extra-dour these days.

My favorite takeaway from this is that someone's son had to drive a Cruze for three weeks while the Fusion was in the shop...
Anyway, Consumer Reports requires a subscription. This, however, was free:
In any case, many people are excited about the new generation of the car that is built here in our local plant. The need to attack the car or to denigrate the hard work it takes to build it or even maintain that plant here when hundreds of other communities would sell their collective souls to have such a place of employment and commerce boggles my mind.
As for "junk which is typical of GM for the last 30 years or so" my wife just traded in her 2002 Cavalier that ran flawlessly for 13 years and had more than 100,000 miles. She now drives her mom's 2001 Cavalier that has 17,000 miles and looks like it just drove off the floor.
Just another viewpoint, but it is noteworthy that we bought the Cavaliers before we moved here and realized that they were made in Lordstown.

NoBS: It's usually because that person has violated terms of service that you agree to when you sign up to post at Vindy.com. If you violate our terms - curse, spam, libel, etc. - you get your privileges revoked. Often these folks still type away like they are still being viewed, though they are not. After 11 years of this this site, there are a few of those folks out there. Despite the conspiracy theories, there is no overlord weighing every post. Sorry. We do have some filters that watch for spam posters - those folks hawking copycat watches, for instance - and sometimes they take out normal people as collateral damage. When they inform us, they are restored.
