obamarocks ...sounds like you are raising a bunch of mambi pambi kids! I would almost bet they were outside playing in the snow today. If not, you are worse than I thought. And instead of griping about the sidewalks....why don't you get out and shovel a little...it might do you some good!

Whimp!

Whitney,

I'd have to say after my early complaint about ljworld being slow to post cancellations, your replies to everyone have been very polite and professional. I'm sure that isn't easy. I've seen some pretty hateful and accusatory posts on ljworld. So, kudos to you. Keep up the good work. Thanks!

The Lawrence campus is OPEN. Then I hope someone closes 13th, 14th. street hills or at least of a video of the accidents.

A paid day off for the "educators" due to these blizzard like conditions. Incredible.

Does an editor's ineptitude ever cause them embarrassment or reason to question their worth or value? Per Webster's, 'an editor prepares (a manuscript) for publication by arranging, revising, etc.' Yet it seems it is left to the readers to do most of the editing on the LJW online forum. If things get tight at the paper and Mr. Simons starts looking at cost vs. benefit, he might be able to save some cash by eliminating personnel who turn out shoddy work.

They might as well cancel classes for tomorrow and wednesday, because there is no way I am taking my kids out in weather like this!
