Fare thee well, O! illustrious scribes and may your new journeys take you upon scenic shores of plenty. We simple moviegoers offer thanks for the many fine words of wisdom you have imparted onto us--steering us away from cinematic turkeys and towards fine films of obtuse merit. Whenever the lights go down and the over-imbibing of popcorn commences, we shall think of you, always and forevermore.

Captain Obvious... your observations are true of people everywhere, not just those leaving the Rock Church. I see this at Target, Home Depot, schools and churches everywhere. It is not really a relevant argument. JavaJoe.... the "poor saps" who paid big money for the condos in Liberty Station also purchased 2 car garages. They have the option to use them. When you live in an urban area, street parking is not guaranteed. Try visiting Boston, New York or Philadelphia to see what city parking is really like. Personally I live 3 blocks from the Rock (I am not a member) and I have NEVER had a problem finding street parking. This tells me that no one should have to park more than a few blocks away (if they choose not to use their garage). I find it hard to feel sorry for them. You may not believe in their religion (and frankly I don't either), but I find them to be very respectful neighbors. In fact, I have experienced more traffic and parking issues due to the High Tech High traffic patterns. Should we try to shut down the schools too? I think a little restraint, patience, acceptance and understanding are in order.

Gail, you're one smart cookie! But the hawties want the easy way out, and won't work at finding the RIGHT guy! You are so one the money about bars and clubs. And running around in a Hooters costume is absolutely the wrong messege to be sending out.

Viewer, I have no idea what you're trying to say?..... thanks for playing.

It is not the records per se, but the trouble one brings, which relates to their background. I do agree with you that there are many good tenants in section 8 housing subsidies, and I would have no problem renting to them if they had references and credit.

If the family is allowing druggies/trouble makers to come in and cause problems then the management has cause to evict them. Document it-which it sounds liek there is plenty already. Go to court- take on the pro bono attorney and wipe the halls with them. A decent judge will not allow a tenant to get away with rule violations under the guise of discrimination. So you spend some money evicting, that is a heck of a lot cheaper than having GOOD tenants move out. Eventually bad apples like this will cause the entire complex to shut down because once market rate tenants leave there will be no money to cover the expenses (mortgage, taxes etc)O and the property will go back tot he lender. Management is letting down the decent tenants at the expense of the bad apples, and that is bad management and I would move if I were a good tenant, no matter how much I liked the place. I was actually in a couple of places where I had teh same problem, one was my apartment in MI, a guy would play his steroa 24/7, I told the managers I was breaking the one year oease if they didn't fix it and then suing them, it was me or the stereo jerk-stereo jerk got the boot.

I hope the moped rider is OK....I have been hit on a bicycle AND a motorcycle, and lucky I was not killed.

Wow, this is news that should have been on every TV station in the country. Why wasn't it? Must not fit the main-stream media's narrative of all Muslims being crazy fanatics? Thanks to those that showed up for this event. Thanks to Gail for being the only reporter in the US that covered it.

Right on Gail. We can turn this around. It was very emotional last night. We have to take the streets back!

Great investigative work, Gail. Your work is an example of what makes the Reader so great...

This is a case where the death penalty is rightous and deserved without question.
