Dorian Hargrove works hard at journalism, and wins international coverage for The Reader story he broke about Goldsmith prosecuting a man for protesting bank fraud using childrens chalk.

Randy Dotinga, down on his luck VOSD freelancer, feeling sorry for himself and his fading career, figures the only way he can get in on the story is to try to be a mouthpiece for Goldsmith.

My bet is that Dotinga is angling for a PR job with the City Attorney's office...

They also know -- or should know -- that from an educational perspective, Bridgepoint is a disgrace, as the study by the U.S. Senate committee showed decisively

It's ALL about the money-the Congress takes HUGE sums from these big companies, and they in turn allow them to wreck our country.......................

Don, if I were but you and should perchance encounter such an insulting dullard on the byway, I'd rap him smartly across the noggin with my walking stick and say, "fey and begone, you insufferable cad"...but I'm nowhere near the gentleman you are, so I'll just point out his many professional failings in online comments.

(1) It's not a "photo"; it's a design concept. (2) Manchester ran a non-union hotel when he owned the Manchester Grand Hyatt, to scrimp on wages and benefits for his hardworking employees. (3) His dwindling U-T has eliminated jobs, NOT hired more people. The old "job creator" nonsense is once again exposed for what it really is.

A maquiladora is an assembly plant. The work is done much cheaper in Mexico, than it would be here. Many U.S. companies use them, including Sony and Volkswagen. So it's easy to understand why NASSCO is doing this; it's all about increasing their profits.

Hmmm. I've ordered that burger with cheese, and paid the price without seeing anything abusive. The extra cost for cheese is rather steep, I'll admit, but the whole thing is price competitive. I'd wonder just how he determined that it's an "overcharge."

But in a larger sense, has Shameless lost his marbles? Or is he trying to be a reincarnation of Ralph Nader? He's neither, and has no credibility with me at all; nor should he have any with anyone who lives in the area. Just what is he up to?
