“You’re a bad man. You’re a very bad man!”

“You’re a bad man. You’re a very bad man!”

“A concerned Mayor Ron Corbett met with our editorial board this past week.

He’s concerned about the low quality of public discourse, and contends that providing space on our opinion page for letters and columns depicting harsh misrepresentations of city decisions is a contributing factor.”

“Also on Tuesday we’ll launch major changes to online commenting at TheGazette.com. The new Daily Conversations section will feature three fresh conversations a day on topics of local interest that we believe people are or will want to talk about. Conversations will remain active for 72 hours, and then commenting will be closed. By the end of the week, we’ll have nine daily conversations at a time to choose from.
We’ll provide a little background and links to information on each topic to help users familiarize themselves with the conversation so they can offer insightful commentary. All comments will be moderated, meaning no comments appear until a moderator approves them. Moderation will be staffed from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., so you’ll likely see a batch of comments post each morning from the overnight hours.”

There is a monster loose in our community. It is not an individual. It is a group of individuals used to demanding and getting what they want.

They are spoiled. They are powerful. They are angry at twice being denied a tax they once had, but squandered.

Think only Pacific Institute positive thoughts about their city, especially its Downtown District. Only bad thoughts will be banished to the cornfield…..for now.

Keep your thoughts positive. Keep voting until you vote right. Keep your wallet open. Prepare yourself to once more enter:

About Ajai Dittmar

There is nothing 'radical' about wanting to save your historical neighborhood! There is nothing 'negative' for wanting an 'outside investigation' done a public service that has had a lot of embarrassing news, especially when they don't do their jobs! There is nothing 'odd' about wanting politicians to uphold the Constitution they swear to uphold when they are sworn into office! Follow @sibzianna View all posts by Ajai Dittmar

    Corbett, the city council, and elite in CR are pathetic. The city under these “leaders,” enforce every city code, ordinance, and law IF you are of a lower economic class, but they have some “flexibility,” if you are an out of state corporation/Insurance company that holds a property that should be condemned. Frankly, these local leaders pretty much act like our state and federal leaders. Laws are for those with lesser funds, while the rich skate. Good news is that you can only do that to the masses for so long.

    It seems complete now. Total censorship … except on the TOPICS the arrogant Gazette oligarchs feels are IMPORTANT. I know, I know…it’s not censorship… as anyone can go and start their own paper, as I was informed I am free to do by Annette Schulte. When banned shortly after corbetts groveling.

    I’m sure they will be hard hitting topics choosen….ROTFLMAO.
