Re: “Insta-Classic: Nikki Haley's unfortunate social media undershare

How petty to point this out.

Re: “Reality show makeover might leave locals confused

I want to be supportive of the owners' new venture, but I was very disappointed when I walked in to find Cork Bistro replaced with Cannon Trattoria. I had been there twice in the past two weeks and had no idea that they were changing over. Why "Cannon"? What's the connection? It didn't make sense. I wasn't thrilled with the menu, either. We went for a drink before seeing a play, and ordered a salad at the bar. We waited thirty minutes for a salad to be served, and since it took so long to be served, we didn't have time to eat it. We boxed it up and took it with us. Not a good first impression. E. Montague didn't need another Italian restaurant, anyway. Now I understand; it wasn't an organic change grown out of local forces. A tv show in Atlanta created it out of nowhere with no connection to the area. I hope Cannon is successful, but I don't feel the same attraction to Cannon as I did to Cork. I will give it another chance, though.

Re: “Deregulation will only lead us to disaster

What are the bases for these charges? References or citations to any research would be helpful to substantiate very dubious analysis. Anyone who opposes big government, does so in great part because of the incestuous relationship with big business.

"During the Reagan years, Washington cut funding to many regulatory agencies, and as a result they were unable to perform their legal duties adequately. Under George W. Bush it got worse. Many regulatory agencies simply became extensions of the corporations they were supposed to be overseeing."

Re: “Colbert Busch's deleted tweets reveal her true self

If Mrs. Busch would stop hiding and would communicate with the First District voters, we wouldn't need to guess, theorize, and surmise who she is and what she thinks. We could have a meaningful and substantive dialogue about the issues, but a one-sided conversation is a monologue.

Re: “A salute to Crowfield as they prepare to play their last show

Good job, Joel, bringing the article around to a full circle. I empathize, Frankus. Great guys. Great band.
