Whoa, regarding the TFP disclaimer on Sandra Kurtz's Letter to the Editor: You say cancer didn't spike after the Three Mile Island's Nuclear Disaster. Experts disagree with you. Do some journalism on this one, will ya: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/national/longterm/tmi/stories/study022497.htm
Also, if you're writing disclaimer's on someone's letter to the editor, a very rare behavior for a credible news organ, I have to wonder which you're aspiring to be: a news source, or a broker for the power elite
The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission wrote in its determination letter to the city that "evidence exists to establish that the Charging Party, and a class of individuals, were sexually harassed and retaliated against."
That's several employees, not just the 2 women mentioned in the article above.
Also, it's illegal to sexually harass and retaliate against an employee, much less several, so why the outsized attempt to downplay the federal findings?
Additionally, city records show that Page has gotten raises since he was accused of harassing two women in 2008, and that he now makes more than $95k per year, not $90k, as stated in the article.
I hope the city isn't negotiating a fat severance package for Page.
Another brilliant one!
Skillern is known to walk around using the N-word freely. I know two people who were in the elevator with Skillern yesterday. It's no joke, and no laughing matter that he has such contempt for the people he was elected to represent. Skillern and his networked fellow bubbas can't be trusted to represent any of us, white, black, female, male, propertied or landless. Vote the bubbas out of office. They're robbing us blind to enrich themselves. And clearly this voter ID law is intended to keep at least 126,000 people from voting, a step towards reaching Skillern's likely goal of reducing our ability to vote: http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2011/sep/13/b1-voter-id-law-defended/?print
