Re: “Hedy's review was a rave—why is everybody so upset?

"My big regret is that Weiss didn't address that "necessity" more honestly.." -- why is it *your* regret? You can't regret something you didn't *do* (or not do). Word choice could be a little better.

Re: “The People Issue 2011

I realize assholes are people too, but please, please, Reader: Don't *ever* feature a criminal/asshole like "weed wolf" ever again. What a coward! Just because someone has enough money to buy a nice home (and these days, one doesn't need much to buy a home) doesn't give some entitled, do-nothing thug the right to vandalize it.

Re: “Jay Travis, the organizer

I find Jay's stance and beliefs ridiculous: "...People who are homeowners and receive tax breaks on their houses don't have to be drug tested in order to get that form of government subsidy."
Um, got news for ya, Jay: People who OWN their homes PAID for them, and they get tax breaks because, in theory, they are bettering the community! People in CHA housing are not paying for their homes. I'm sick of all this PC-protect-the-project-dwellers rhetoric. When you get something for *free* there is a cost. Count me among the liberals who think, yes, CHA residents should be drug tested.
