Living in a Two-Paper Town: Post Scoops Times

Yesterday the Ex-Recall group filed a lawsuit. We knew they were going to do it, we knew several days ahead of time what was up, when they planned to do it, some few details about it -- I mean, c'mon, it's a small world, people blabber. The Washington Post knew it by press time Monday night.

But The Times missed the story.

As much as The Times, Washington's conservative paper, has followed this story, and as much as CRC has romanced that newspaper -- when the rubber hits the road, who do they call with the scoop?

The Post.

Let's keep it at least approximately on-topic, and not personal, please. We're here to talk about the MCPS sex-education curriculum, and developments surrounding its piloting and implementation. You want to talk about my personal life, email me personally.

And what does this say about your opposition- personal attacks show immaturity at best and lack of enough knowledge to say something about the topic. For those who want to do that, the Yahoo newsboards serve that purpose- the sort of people who want to do nothing but make insulting, derogatory personal remarks should go there and enjoy.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.... blah, blah. Let me get this... you can throw the personal attacks, but just not receive them. I see how the game works here. Interesting... very interesting. I'd really like to see you honestly stick to the facts... can't happen. You can't do it... It's beyond your scope of work.

Go ahead and try. Let's go.... throw one at me... let me have a fact.

Here's a fact, Susie Q. Homosexuality is not a disease, and sexual orientation is not a choice.

Wow, there's two.

Third... we are tolerant of "Susie Q" trying to be funny at her/his game.

Our jobs = our personal lives. Sorry. Stay on topic or go away.

Wow, sounds like you're really paranoid about your job. Guilty conscience, I suppose.

Anyway, you also deleted the other two thirds of my post, which were decidedly on topic.

Or at least as on topic as your complaining when you were outmaneuvered in the teachthefacts.com domain.

Hmmmm..Do they (Ex-Recall) allow both sides on their blog to be heard?

Wonder why...??

I can only delete an entire post. So ... any stupid stuff, and there goes all the genius comments with it. As far as the domain name thing, we hardly mentioned that. Actually, a reporter asked me about it today, so maybe it'll come out somewhere, but it's not a big deal to us, not a big surprise anyway.
