Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison thank you for everything you've done. I owe my egalitarian marriage, my many wonderful female friends who support me that I've been able to foster over the years, and my positive body imagine to how open and embracing you were to me as a baby feminist so many years ago. A million thanks to you and all my love. You've certainly helped to make my world, and the world of countless others, a more beautiful place and I will be forever grateful.

Re: “Jeff Cook wants to sell your house if you're moving to Canada because of Trump or Clinton

Except that as an American you have NO right to move to Canada.
That is you have to apply for Canadian residency just like someone from Pakistan, India, China, etc. but given how SCREWED up American Nation (People) are as evident by:
1- our Choices being between the Lunatic Trump and Fraud Clinton.
2- It is 2016 USA still lacks something as basic as Government run Universal Socialized Single Payer Healthcare (NHS
3- One Mass Shooting after another and Repugs and Democrats and Wall Street Media, do not do anything about it
etc.

Then Canadian rather give residency to someone from Pakistan, India, China, etc. over someone from USA.

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

So what I gather is this: KG, Sam, the rest of the City Paper Ed team, and I are like some kind of special breed of person, homo superior mutants or something, who aren't afraid to put our faces and names next to our words. Good to know. I wonder what other abilities we have. Oooh ... I think I can see through clothes. Oh wait, I just got out of the shower and my towel fell. How embarrassing.

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

I have no problem with this because my father taught me never to say or write anything that I wasn't willing to sign my name to.

It constantly surprises me how many people, especially in comment sections, weren't taught that.

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

I HATE FACEBOOK!
Yep, It's been fun! I don't belong to Facebook for a reason. The more personal information on the Internets, the more likely a person is to suffer identity theft because it is just another website with our personal info to be hacked. So, bye!

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison, I'm sorry I haven't commented before, but I didn't know what to say, too many feelings. I will just say, we will miss you, especially Catherine. It's tragic you had to go through this and having lost parents and lovers and friends, I can say with certainty when your suffering ends, we will continue to suffer, some longer than others. Maybelle will be fine and you will live on longest in her memory. That is what should be most important. For you, it's not the end, as no matter what you believe, it will be the beginning of a new chapter. Love you, Catherine's Mom, Carolyn

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison, I appreciate your bravery, love, and faith. You are an inspiration to females, feminists, in particular, and to people in general. I love you. You are living a full life. You are not going quietly into the night. You have left your mark on this Earth. I love you. May the Creator of the Universe surround you with peace and uplift you.

Love,

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

Waittttttt- El Super Saturn, you are one of my faves. Want me to set up a General FB Acct for you called whatever you want or some other name and errbody can sign in and use the same password and still leave comments? Mat and Jaxx can use it too. One account for all y'all. I think that would be frigging funny as shit. A bunch of comments all different and random all coming from one account. Simply Perfect. Zuckerberg is a dick, that is a fact, but still......I will miss your comments. Let me know and I will set it up immed.

Re: “Zoning decision makes way for more residential units, affordable housing at Sgt. Jasper site

We will see about it, maybe, suggested, an amendment to encourage, possible opportunity for affordable housing, in the eyes of the Beach Company = absolutely fucking NOT. Get that tow truck number and the traffic patrol on speed dial and get ready neighbors. Haul their butts outta there every time they park on your street. Its fun and a great pastime, involve the whole family. Just ask the Boulevard's neighbors over in Mt. P. Ask them how good of a "neighbor" that Beach Project makes and how neighborly Be-ach was. They all hate it. It was a complete nightmare before, during and after with absolutely NO consideration for any of the neighbors. Good Luck with that Beach Co. Bidnezz.

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

I will sign in with FB, as long as I do not have to "friend" or follow any of you there and vice versa. I have enough asshole friends already. Same with google, y'all def can not be in my circle. If I have to have "Friend" or follow you then Bye Felicia. Can we use tinder or snapchat sign in instead? They both seem more city paper apropos.

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

The Super Saturn hates Mark Zuckerberg and refuses to be coerced into making him even more wealthy. Signing off...and will miss the two guys above and their opinions.

Thanks City Paper for providing a wonderful place for free expression for so long. The Super Saturn understands why the change is necessary but TSS will mever supprt Facebook, Twitter, or Google.

A big planetary goodbye to all...

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Since you were little more than a girl, you have had a way of cutting to the chase in such a graceful way, and planting questions in the minds of people that entice them to search for answers. Answers to hard questions. You have contributed
greatly to making the world a better place. Thank you for your MUCHNESS!

Ditto. I've enjoyed it, but not so much that I'm going to join FB.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

This is my first time ever reading your column, i can see I've missed a gem. I live in NJ. One of my wonderful Facebook friends I've met because of my daughter's disability posted it. So I'm grateful for all three of you extraordinary girls. I am sorry that it's come to this point for you. I just said a prayer for you, Maybelle, your mother and your family. I didn't always have God in my life. For the first half of my life I did not. And then a long and debilitating life-threatening illness nearly took mine away. I was on the cusp, and that was the convincer. Jesus has never left my side and I know now that He was always there, even when I wasn't sure. He's there for you too. I pray for peaceful last days and for blessed assurance. God bless and keep you Alison. ❤️ From NJ.
