Thirdeye NAILED it with his/her comment at 617pm.
The fact is, the Journal could be so much more, but as currently run it is no more than an advocacy rag.
Read anything about harbor development, rails, trails, and oh yes, the Marina Center project and you get nothing but slanted coverage, with perjoratives abounding in an unending effort to denigrate the projects/side they oppose.
The sad thing is, I don't even think they realize they are doing this.
Take the Railroad for example. Any and all coverage has been slanted from day one as being a physical impossibility to restore service through the Eel River canyon (and, btw, I am no rail advocate, I would just like to see both sides of the issue presented fairly).
If the Feds decided to put stimulus money into that project, then it wouldnt be quite so impossible, and again when you have folks like Dan Hauser thinking that rail development is possible, that lends it at least some credibilty.
I can't add to what thirdeye said at 617, as he/she nailed it so spot on other than to say, Hank, Judy, Heidi, Ryan, et al - take those comments to heart - you may not like what they say, but you can take them constructively and change.
God, I love the Journal - rather what it used to be. It can be that paper again. Hard hitting, and asking the hard questions, and not just shilling for trails/no harbor development and no marina center.
How about a hard hitting article on how a certain supposedly "most popular" HumCo councilman is a shrill, belittling bully when it comes to the staff of a certain Victorian Seaport City?
