CRXN: "...to freak people out, BUT a professional journalist..."
Nice summary, Goff. I imagine the reporter who wrote the initial "GUNMAN LOOSE" post made an honest mistake and didn't mean to freak people out, a professional journalist should have a better grip on how to deliver information.
Even more importantly, when a mistake is made, the professional response is to acknowledge it, correct it as much as possible, and move on to treating viewers/readers/listeners/etc. with respect. Not banning people for pointing out those errors.
Cut off the racists and the inordinately foul-mouthed, sure, but accurate criticism of an incomplete story that rightfully scared people? That's just bad form and disrespectful to the community supposedly being served.
Especially people who have the decency to use their names and stand behind their words. Snark and all.
Great story, Heidi -- I'm so glad you did this. Amazing little piece of history hiding in our backyard.
When I was on food stamps, monthly reports were the norm – as was inquiries into what you owned (car or anything else of value) – if that's changed, glad to hear it.
Ryan, that is the greatest write-up about the General Plan update ever.
