First off, congrats on being a voice for conservative principles for more than 80 years. Seeing as how Ye Olde Free Press was established only 76 years ago, that's a hell of an achievement!
By the way, the Drew Johnson 2012 "Please, Please, Look at Me" tour continues today at Miller Plaza at noon. He will be doing cartwheels, handstands and riding a unicycle as he continues his desperate attempts to get attention.
Love these in-depth editorials. Eric Stewart sucks, but vote for him anyway. Richard Floyd is awful, but we support him anyway. Stay classy, snark boy.
Bottom line, the TFP is desperate to draw attention to itself, for obvious reasons. Kind of like Newsweek has done for the past couple of years. How'd that work out, by the way?
One thing's for sure: Drew Johnson is true to himself. He will do whatever is necessary on his page, to draw attention to what is most important: Drew Johnson.
First Amendment rah-rah is great, but it's hard to defend a lack of class. It's hard to defend a cartoonist who took a shot at Judge Bob Moon on the day of his funeral. It's hard to defend a cartoonist who draws a suicide attempt on a man who has reportedly done just that. Yeah, go on about your freedom of speech. It's just too bad your paper has no class or taste.
So...this obviously means the right-wingnut Free Press will not endorse Richard Floyd for re-election in November, right? This will be interesting...
Nice re-hash of what the network commentators said after the debate. Transcribing all that couldn't have been easy. Too bad these nuggets of wisdom couldn't be finished in time to get in today's inky Olde Newspaper.
Excuses, excuses. Look around. A recent $21 million makeover for Howard, and new computers coming in (and getting stolen, requiring new computers coming in) all the time. New schools at Hardy, East Lake (two!), East Side, Brown, Battle, Orchard Knob, Calvin Donaldson, a big renovation at Dalewood, a big renovation at Woodmore...incentives for teachers to move to these schools, federal grants, consultants, trips, technology...
And they still fail. Whose fault is that? When will see a column on that subject? Taxpayer dollars from all over the county have rebuilt inner city schools: and you're blaming US for their continued failure?
I love these precious people who are sending money to Howard School for band instruments and uniforms. Most of them are well-meaning, and probably can't afford it. They're sucked into it by a newspaper that loves to take on a "good cause."
Too bad the newspaper doesn't actually do research, and report on the fact that Rev. W.C. Hunter fell for the same thing 5 years ago, donating $25,000 to the Howard Band. Those new instruments and uniforms walked out the door a few months later, and never came back. Wonder if this will happen again?
Another edition of juvenile tripe. Attacking Johnny McDaniel, who has more integrity in his pinky finger than baby Drew will ever have in his life; and the UTC football program, which admirably battles great odds each week.
This is what you get when you hire someone with the disposition and maturity of a 13-year-old to write editorials. TFP keeps getting closer to that iceberg. Next stop: 3 days a week.
