'Where's the news about protesters?' and more letters to editors

Where's the news about protesters?

Why have we not seen any coverage of the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York by the Times Free Press?

On Oct. 1, over 700 people were arrested during a nonviolent march across the Brooklyn Bridge. Sounds like news to me.

Watch what you get to detect gas

October is Fire Prevention Month.

Companies supplying natural gas usually add a chemical that smells like rotten eggs. This is to alert the person or persons to a gas leak. However, if they have lost the sense of smell, this would not help. When this happens, a natural gas detector must be purchased.

Some people have been told that a First Alert CO (carbon monoxide) information sheet which is supplied with their product plainly states that it only alerts to CO (carbon monoxide) and to no other gas, smoke or fire.

Too many deer create nuisance

Everyone needs to get over their "Bambi fixation" and realize that the overpopulation of deer is a nuisance.

Yes, they are beautiful animals. But rather than picture a fawn, why not picture four or five deer eating hostas, ornamentals, fruit trees and other yard plants?

Folks can't give up the park for four days so that the deer can be culled?

Good grief. Not that hunters with bows and arrows will cull that many to begin with!

Have the same complainers advocated against further residential and commercial development as man continues to take away more wildlife habitat?

And lastly, venison chili tastes real good!

How did warming occur previously?

The Times Free Press (Sept. 30) story, "Ice shelves shrink in Canadian Arctic," stated: "The loss (of ice) is important as a marker of global warming, returning the Canadian Arctic to conditions that date back thousands of years, scientists say."

I wonder who caused the melting back then?

Like people suggesting that there has to be consciousness behind everything, there is no reason to phrase the question in this way. There isn't a who, because there's not a god, mostly because climatologists could probably explain with a purely natural process how a thousand years ago an iceberg melted.

Of course, you may very well have a sarcastic tone in what appears to be denial of some human affect of climate change and/or global warming. No one said this process is wholly human derived, it could very well have happened in the past without human intervention.

Re: The Brooklyn Bridge arrests: They were directed into the traffic lanes by the pigs, then corralled behind barracades and arrested "for blocking traffic".

L4F doesn't know what their message is because #1) Fox Noise hasn't, and probably never will, tell him what it is and #2) as an unquestioning fascist scumbag, he won't use his rudimentary intelligence to seek it out using the very instrument sitting in front of him.

"As far as I'm concerned, these global citizen trash can go to hell" - L4F

If these were teaparty people protesting L4F would be calling them upstanding patriotic citizens practicing their constitutional right to freedom of assembly and freedom of speech. But because they happen to not share his political views they are trash and can go to hell. Ah, such an enlightened soul, this L4F.

Anyone who is still conflicted over why 20,000 people marched in New York and are gathered in many other cities here as well as in supportive marches around the world can clear up that little problem by listening to Keith Olbermann read their statement HERE:
