"The class is aimed at helping inmates build stronger relationships with their children." Except for the slight detail that they won't be able to actually see each other face to face as long as they're inside. Hello?

Well, it certainly mattered to you enough to tell Robert to wake up. And if you're worried about your kids, I should think that knowing which party is responsible for the greatest increases in debt would be important to you. The differences seem fairly significant to me; the fact that somehow the republicans are known as fiscal conservatives when they're clearly not, even more so.

The good part is, the younger crowd takes this issue seriously and wants to do what it can to mitigate it. That includes coming up with more efficient, cleaner ways to generate energy and move people and material.

I'm glad. I hope someone suggested using the police station money -- not because the police don't need a new facility, but because if they do, and all of council seems to think they do, it should be relatively easy to convince the voters of this and get a bond issued. If the city went this route, the downtown improvements could begin immediately.

"An editorial that starts off saying high speed internet should be considered a basic utility like water, sewer or electricity ends all credibility right there. It compares static utilities with high tech services." Huh? The internet is indeed an essential utility, and as more and more services are piped through the net, it will only grow more essential. 152 was blatantly orchestrated to ensure a monopoly by a select few megaproviders. If you're interested in free market solutions, it's gotta be repealed. I haven't seen anyone debunk John's cogent analysis.

Environmentally sound energy? What are you smoking? If you really think that expelling massive amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere will have no effect on the lives of our children, I've got a bridge to sell ya. And you demonstrate your true ignorance when you say the temperature has been flat for 12 years. Haven't the last several years smashed temperature records?

The fact is that without a nudge from government, these coal-centric corporations will happily go on raking in the dough, regardless of whether what they're doing is harming the environment. We know this to be true based on the actions of fossil fuel corporations in the past. These guys will only change their ways when they're forced to. If they're smart, they'll start looking for other energy solutions in which they can invest to keep themselves going. If they're not, they'll fight this tooth and nail, and lose, but they won't be the only ones. That said, when you undertake an action that will put a large employer out of business, you might want to take the time to think about everyone who's going to be impacted by your action and how they're supposed to carry on living afterward. Wild Earth Guardians clearly shows its contempt for coal miners themselves by throwing their lives into turmoil with this lawsuit. Someone over there is feeling real proud of themselves for striking a blow against dirty coal, I'm sure, but they're clueless as to how what they're doing can ruin lives as well. May I suggest a walk through Craig?
