Slog: News & Arts

RSS icon Comments on Freedom of Expression


I love the fact that as the letter transitions from same to crazy, the writing goes from single to double space. Those strong words need extra space to breath ya know.

That sounds like pretty much any old Friday night for Stranger staffers, right?

Should we sign the person up for a lot of subscriptions and free trials?!?!?

Do you suppose the writer supports lynching as well?

So yeah, this guy's a nutcase - but I can't help wondering if your post is merely an excuse to publish his address in the hope that a Stranger fan will somehow retaliate on your behalf. I adore the Slog, it's a great venue in which your readership can connect with Staffers; but this sort of thing creates an environment in which the only safe way to submit negative feedback is anonymously. Sure, this asshole's letter crosses the line far beyond "negative feedback"...but still.

Vietnam war vets did nothing to secure or promote any freedom of mine. Nor do any current active military do anything of the kind.
May Murray and Senator McCain drown in their own drool while napping on the toilet waiting for their stopped up bowels clear.

Umm, publishing this guys address, no matter how crazy and vaugely threatening his letter may be, is pretty darn Malkinesque if you ask me.

Yeah, I've never been quite clear on what Vietnam had to do with our freedoms.

Didn't mean to get your panties in a bunch, pals. Our estimable art director has obscured the return address for the safety of all.

He's a west-sider. You take your life into your own hands over there.

I'll vomit into my own mouth after I stick my elbow into my ear. Anyone wanna watch?

Actually, if you guys could get the proper permits, that'd be a great event for next year's Capitol Hill Block Party.

All I could think as I stared at that was how glad I am that I don't have to read student essays any more.

I've never understood the conservative logic that one should never use the freedoms that soldiers work so hard to attain.

Re: What those dogs are doing.

What's the name for that position? What is the going rate? Can you just ask anyone to do it or do you seek a specialist? Is it considered "cheating."

Sometimes those homicidal maniacs are so cute.
