You're still doing it Ryan Burns. Observe, report, badass.

Re: “New Year's Eve

Emerald Empress - People aren't really critiquing the writer. The story made some sweeping statements, and wasn't thorough by any means, but it was a brief piece to accompany the photo essay, and that issue could easily be overlooked. The real problem is with the North Coast Journal's editorial staff's decision to continually choose coverage of the area pot scene, in a variety of marginally different ways. NCJ staff, your readers get it -- marijuana fills a variety of socio-economic niches in our community. It is medicine, a spiritual intoxicant and agribusiness. That's not profound to your readers in Humboldt County -- it's the reason they moved here. If people want to pick up a local publication and read about pot, let them turn to the myriad other free publications that exist purely to cover the pot scene. There are some reasonable reasons to provide coverage of Humboldt's marijuana culture. But this article doesn't provide any new information. It seems to say "hey look, here's what the pot culture looks like here." There are serious news stories in endless supply in this county. You have very good writers who have a lot of time to follow those issue. So why do we keep seeing Mary Jane paraded across the cover of the NCJ like it's the poor man's High Times?

Re: “New Year's Eve

God this article is pathetic. You guys have a full month to write a story -- what do you fill all your time with. Aside from the fact it appears a high school student wrote the brief article, your independent weekly devoted another full issue to the most mundane, un-newsworthy drivel ever! It's truly wonderful that the college students in Arcata love tastefully fucking each other in the middle of grow rooms, but is it really necessary to devote so many pages to it? Don't you have actual writers on staff who get paid real money? Come on guys, start thinking about your content, this is just lame.
