New Lars Larson column

Lars: Legislators took a lot of time to do ... nothing
Larson: I guess that I should be thankful that the Oregon Legislature has spent the better part of the last six months accomplishing precisely ... well, nothing. The 90-odd (and that term applies doubly so in some cases) liberals, progressives, anarchists, bomb throwers and the few remaining conservatives have arranged themselves in self-canceling coalitions incapable of increasing taxes, limiting land use rights, disarming the citizenry or otherwise making a nuisance of themselves. That's the good news.

It's about time Lars got a column in a Fishwrapper. Now I'm just waiting for that book I heard him mention once...

Lars' writing style is great, combining some biting wit, numerous stories and a mention of... me! Thanks so much for the kudos Lars!

Make sure you email Editor Bart Smith, bsmith@newsreview.info and tell him you want them to continue to publish Lars' column.

Perfect. Thanks!
I e mailed and told them to CANCEL the stupid column. Inflammatory, non-informed columns arent' worthy of being published.

Just as well, inflammatory and non-informed COMMENTS are not worthy to be published...but Daniel saw fit to keep yours around. Gee, I wonder why?

Get out from your anonymous shell, asswipe, and show yourself.

And remember, for every one you send to Bart...I and my people down here have sent 3.

Poor anonymous, he doesn't realize that his email will encourage the paper to keep the column. Newspapers like editorials that get reactions, even a negative one. It shows that people are reading it.

I have sent my letter. Thanks for sending yours Sailor.

Actually, you're wrong Daniel. (suprise! gee, like that isn't EVERY day)
Editors DON"T like email that's negative because it hurts with advertising. And you betcha I'll let the advertisers anywhere close to that column know that I won't be supporting them because they're in a publication with a column like that. At least the column won't be as bad as your website...I would hope.
