Best of Reader Comments, Week of July 28
This is the first in a series of Tuesday columns chronicling the highlights of the week’s reader comments — because this stuff is too good not to share! As site usage increases I may also increase the frequency of these posts. Help me out by emailing your favorite comments to email@example.com. – VVM
Common Tater says: They say Jesus is the son of God, but where’s his birth certificate? If he doesn’t have one, why not? Jesus must have something to hide! I bet he’s a Middle Eastern terrorist!
Paul says: Orly Taitz sounds like Arnold Schwarzenegger and acts like Sarah Palin. Oh well…
Mason Lerner says: In the future, people will only be able to process thoughts that have 140 characters or less.
Juan Salinas says: Why does the name, “Douglas C. Neidermeyer” come to mind? Ah, yes, I remember.
Ben says: I will share your article with the 3 individuals I have had to terminate today.
HotDogLover says: No, no they don’t…
Juan Salinas says: I love that the NPR covered the story by calling hot dogs the new “cancer sticks.” I guess that they’re unaware that there’s no HPV test for men. No vaccine for hot dogs and no way to tell which mens’ naughty bits may cause cervical cancer. I believe blackjack dealers call that a “push.”
mattheww says: Years after the music industry supposedly imploded, my experience with actual music is exponentially richer and more satisfying than ever. I am regularly left speechless by the question “what music do you like,” because so much good stuff is out there from so many sources, and various Internet tools make discovering music likely to appeal to me automatic where it once was all but impossible. The same thing is happening with news. The industry keeps telling us its in its death throes, yet the public is better-informed than ever. Sorry, dudes. But don’t worry about us — WE will be fine.
S.H. LaMont says: This is a joke, right? I spent 42 years in the news business as an editor and writer, worked at seven different daily newspapers, including two of the largest in the country, and only rarely did I ever feel the reporters, writers and photographers — content producers — were compensated fairly. There is a world beyond New York City. You should check it out.
Alan Smithee says: Here’s a way to deal with some unavoidable phone trees and to reach a real live human being: http://www.dialahuman.com/
wtobias says: if you look at his shoes there is a gold L and R on them
twiner says: I think the explanation for Biden’s unguarded outbursts is very simple. Biden reads your blog. He saw the post on “Gazprom Demonstrates Lack of Familiarity with U.S. Slang” and in an unscientific extrapolation decided that no one in Russia speaks any English nor do they have access to English speaking resources. So his interview with the WSJ was private in his mind.
Jennifer says: Interesting move. Maybe the local coffee shops should follow the lead and rebrand themselves as Starbucks.
cherish says: Money cannot buy hippieness, either.
Mason Meisch says: Harvest, i recall in the Autumn of 1994 at a cast party in a pizzeria, you watched me swallow a table spoon of hot crushed peppers. Then you took a crack at it, and a few seconds later became overwhelmed with pain. I went to the kitchen and brought you a glass of milk and you recovered. In this situation i don’t think genetics played a part. I would have reacted the same way if i had not pushed the spoon down my throat so that the peppers never touched my mouth. You know, at first i felt really bad about that but i guess the discomfort was temporary, and it was kind of funny. auld lang syne -Mason
