Jim Kelley 1 month ago on Meg Bentley: Letter was ‘un-American’

Come on Meg! Are you serious? I just had to re-read their letter to see if there was something I missed. Are you reading the same letter? This letter did not pass judgement or insinuate any guilt whatsoever! The purpose of this letter was to make sure a very reluctant city manager and some reluctant council members completely and openly investigate this and not just sweep it under the rug! These folks, like many other constituents, do not feel that the current city leadership is committed to uncovering this uncomfortable situation (As if they could just push an "easy" button and make it all go away!) Their letter helps put a bright light on the process and puts pressure on the "leadership". It is NOT Un-American and is, in fact, a great example of civic responsibility.

Jim Kelley 1 month, 3 weeks ago on DA: Suspect "at large" in case involving missing Stagecoach man

This is tragic, but why is this residence being labeled as "Stagecoach"? This is Blacktail, not Stagecoach. Not even the same side of YJ pass.

Careful Mark, The land bridge between Australia and Tasmania pre-dates those famous words you like to use: "And God said, Let there be light" by about 10 thousand years. I am glad to see you use actual scientifically acknowledged geological events of the past as a basis for your argument though!

It seems that the weather forecasts in the past would accurately predict the temps but not the moisture. Notoriously, if they predicted 2 feet, we would usually get 3 inches, but now, it's not just a question of how much but instead, rain or snow? This season seems to reflect a new challenge to weather forecasting around here. ....Not trying to agitate climate change deniers or anything!

Jim Kelley 2 months, 1 week ago on Linda Lewis: Questions to answer

Linda, This measles strain is from the Philippines, genotype B3. The same strain is also affecting 14 other countries currently. The world measles vaccination rate is 85%. Measles is so contagious that it takes a vaccination rate greater than 95% to keep outbreaks down. This measles outbreak was at 129 when you penned your letter but it is now at 182 (on 2/18/15, CDC).

Your number cited of children getting cancer everyday is 43 but measles still kills 400 people per day world wide, killing 145,700 in 2013 (CDC). 1 in 68 children has autism but what does this have to do with the measles vaccine (good luck there!) Vaccination rates in the US used to be at 96%. Now, only 91% of kindergarten age children are vaccinated in the U.S. This number and the current outbreak is what makes this news important.

What does vaccination policy have to do with the Iraq War?
