What the hell is going on? I go away for a few days, and my email box is filled with enough high octane bullshit to fuel the National Review for ten years. In the last four days, several people have written me to vent their deepest hatred of every single front page writer here with the exception of Tim F.
According to you all, ED is just spewing right-wing talking points, Dennis G. wants to murder Texans, DougJ offers nothing, Mistermix is too much like DougJ, Anne trivializes feminist issues with her snark and is too over the top, I’m too anti-religion and just as close-minded as when I was a Republican.
Folks- there is a comment section for a reason. Put those comments there, so the people you have a gripe with can address them. Stop yelling at me, because while I respect your opinions, I’m not going to be persuaded by you to remove someone’s front page privileges. Period. My philosophy when I ask people to write here I give them carte blanche, and they can pretty much write whatever they want. I’m not their editor. I’m not hovering over their shoulder with assignments telling them what they can and can not write. If they say something that pisses me off, I’ll write a post or a comment telling them I disagree.
There is a reason we don’t troll rate comments or posts here. If you aren’t mature enough to handle ideas that offend you, or ideas that you disagree with, or a some four letter words and pictures of fat cats, this really is the wrong venue for you.

I forgot my favorite complaint- “You guys link to Sullivan too much.”
Pro-tip: DON’T. CLICK. THE. DAMNED. LINK.
