Comments on: Selling artificial knees, analyzing the Trayvon Martin trial, and Random House cancels Paula Deen’s cookbook Steven Brill Tue, 19 Aug 2014 18:30:28 +0000 hourly 1 By: bettie Mon, 08 Jul 2013 16:50:59 +0000 paula deen should place a lawsuit against the white womanwho is sueing her and do it for “defamation of character” if this stupid suit goes through, there should be thousands more because racism is everywhere. we might as well “get over it” even black comics use that word. inthe trayvon trial,i believe the one on bottom was screaming for help because the one on top was beating him to death.

Advertisers are always trying to create need. This isn’t new. If they tell us that we should/could be running marathons if we just had better knees then who wouldn’t “ask their doctor”? And what orthopedic surgeon is going to turn down the opportunity to perform surgery? A few maybe, but most will jump on it.

I submitted a comment to this article, which immediately disappeared into cyberspace, AND the column by John Lloyd about Egypt is closed for comment.

Why bother to run a news service that supposedly allows comments, but then allows virtually none at all?

My suggestion is to run your comments like the UK Guardian, where reader response can run as high as hundreds of comments on some articles, PLUS you can “vote” on each comment.

Most of your articles generate only a handfull of comments.

I wonder how many people really read this trash?

By: EconCassandra Tue, 02 Jul 2013 13:12:22 +0000 Sorry, but your “wish list” of stories you’d like to see are “somewhat” different than mine.

Why are you writing this ridiculous column?

To serve as a distraction from real news?

I think the company’s stockholders may be the ones who will do that.
