Re: “We've Come to Prefer They/Them Pronouns

I'm totally behind the use of, "they," or,"them," as in the examples given above ("When a customer walks into a restaurant, they can order off the menu" or, "Every attendee brought their dog." ) However, the rest of the time I'd prefer to see pronouns used which reflect reality, rather than what people wish, want, or imagine themselves to be.

Otherwise, I prefer the pronoun, "God Almighty, Ruler of Kings, and the Baddest Motherfucker Around."

Please don't disrespect me by calling me, "he," or, "him," unless, of course, it's capitalized.

Re: “New Baby Names

The author leaves me wondering what, in this day and age, would be considered, "disconcertingly ethnic."

Brian Patrick, perhaps? Or my father's name: Robert Lee. I'll bet that would get the haters going.

Re: “North Coast Night Lights: Eel River Stargazer

One of my favorite places on Earth. Thinking of my dear friend Pat Somes and the night we lay on the sand there, viewing this spectacular until the wee and solving the world's problems. We even had the pelaides thrown into the mix. Pat is about to enter this greater place -- soar on, Pat. Soar on!

Re: “A Great Concept But ...

Freeze permits for big houses and watch them line up to build smaller ones...

For over a generation America's working families have been forced live on less...why not the development industry, healthcare industry, insurance industry, energy industry, auto industry, education and finance industry...

Oh right...government works for them.

Re: “We've Come to Prefer They/Them Pronouns

We don't prefer pronouns. We use them or have them. This is CM Scott. Their pronouns are they/them/their. "Prefer" implies pronouns are optional - they aren't.

Re: “A Word about the 'Threat' of White Supremacy

R. Putnam,
It's unfortunate you equate white supremacy and the Klan, arguably the worst among us, with white folks and their cultures in general. Maybe look into that. But you are correct that we should all look into our own biases and prejudices. It's part of why I interrogate my own racial privilege and assumptions and incorporate them where it makes sense. As far as attacking black, Asian, Latino and Jewish culture and identity, there are more than enough people working on that already.

Re: “KEKA Pulls Out of Truckers Parade, Asks Others to Step Up

Realistically, the amount of fuel required probably only cost a few Middle East children's lives considering 18 years of U.S. oils wars...

And now the climate change refugees...caused by carbon...

At what point do we say "ENOUGH"???

Re: “Welcome to NCJ Burger Week!

What person other than a professional food critic has enough time to dine in at a restaurant 3-4 times a day for 9 days in a row to be able to try all 30 of these delicious burgers! Especially when some are only available for lunch or dinner only. NCJ ,please make take out available if you realistically want people to try every burger and vote the best of the bunch. Thanks

Re: “Taiko Swings up to Humboldt

Know your history.

WWII, and most others, arose from people easily manipulated from their desperate poverty. Resurgent protests by torch-bearing, right-winger racists would return to obscurity tomorrow if they had living wage jobs.

Tens of millions of U.S. families are facing unprecedented debt from corrupt shortages manipulated by government/industry collusion divesting in affordable housing, healthcare, and education.

Until more Americans go downtown to end local participation in this corruption, (regaining control from industry), Trump's "base" will remain secure and history's sad repetition is guaranteed.

Eureka and Humboldt County's little "Trumps" still call the shots.

Re: “Welcome to NCJ Burger Week!

Mazzoti's burger looked good, but their burger wasn't available after 2 p.m. and they didn't advertise that fact. I was disappointed, but didn't stay for a more expensive dinner. Happily enjoyed one at Plaza Grill instead.

Re: “Pole Fight: Fortuna Art Installation Draws Councilmember's Ire

Dean Glaser is a well known nut. He picks fights and rants about anything that offends his extreme right wing views. It's hard to understand why he's been on the city council for so long, except it keeps him busy. He's an embarrassment to fortuna.

Re: “Agatha Christie's Spider’s Web
