Re: “Gurnee's hypocrisy is on display

Gurnee had been a democrat for more than 20 years. He switched under Clinton, then switched back under Trump.

Re: “Signs of drama

Too bad the Shredder presents jokes as serious comments (my joke about spray painting the sign.) I have also joked about spray painting the black building downtown that everyone hates, but this does not mean I am saying this seriously. Oh! well! What can you expect from someone who hides behind such a name as Shredder?

Re: “In this corner ...

The Shredder conveniently omits that Gurnee is supported by Christine Mulholland, Allen Settle, Peg Pinard, Kathy Smith, Kenneth Clark, and John Ewan, all moderate or moderate progressives. Come on Shredder, if you are going to trash someone, you should at least try to be more honest!

Re: “Cycletracks and ageism

Answer to ra 237: The "older" generation had to struggle to purchase a home in SLO years ago and many of us had to purchase a home elsewhere--Los Osos, AG, Atascadero-- wait 5-10 years, sell it for a profit, and then finally purchase a home here in SLO . Salaries have historically been too low for the cost of living here so we were in the same position that you are in now. The difference is that we lived where we could afford. Your "entitlement" attitude is not flattering, and your claim that you are in a unique situation, is just plain false. We have all been there and resent it when we hear the accusation that we got ours and now we don't want you to have yours. We struggled and found a way without ruining the quality of life of this lovely city by cramming it with more homes than our infrastructure can handle.

Re: “Hypocrite or politics?

Throwing dirt at people with absolutely no proof (like the accusation against Gurnee) and then lamenting the fact that other people do the same thing... hmm... And trying to portray someone as racist because he linked two words starting with the letter N, and condemned both of them. Is this new journalism?

Re: “Ageism or sexism?

Shredder, whoever you are, if you were a bit more civil and much less biased, people would not be worried about being interviewed by you. But you have such a way of twisting whatever people say or do that most prefer to stay miles away from you. Your page is supposed to be funny, and--yes--you say it is never civil, but at the very least, you could try to be more objective. You are just about as objective and thoughtful as Trump. So... you like Heidi, and you rush to her rescue every time she is attacked by anyone. Fine with me. But, please, don't get into a rant against people who don't share your adulation. Their beliefs are just as worthy of respect as yours.

Re: “Moore and #MeToo

I just read this article one month late (sorry.) I am a woman who has been through a lot of #me too. At ten I was molested by a family friend, at thirteen I was confronted to a man who flashed himself, at fourteen I had to find a way to defend myself against a predator in a bus, at twenty I was grabbed by the ... in the street, at twenty-three I filed sexual harassment charges against my boss... and there is more. Still, I share the same concerns as Bob Cuddy when I see the instant acceptance of any accusation, and the same treatment for outrageous behavior and simple stupidity. Al Franken made a really stupid joke, but did we need to lose a great senator because of this joke? Garrison Keillor touched the bare back of a woman friend, but did you ever see Keillor in person? This man walks around with his eyes closed, appearing to be locked into his own world. He apologized for not paying attention, I think it's enough. There is a huge difference between people like Franken and Keillor, and the predators who have harassed women since the dawn of time. Right now, we seem to have forgotten it. And yet, the Predator-in-Chief is still in his seat, and Clarence Thomas is still Supreme Court Justice. I don't think it is what Anita Hill wanted for women.
