Comment history

Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

I won't be surprised if this, my final comment, is removed, but I am thankful for the insights, entertainment & opinions from a wide variety of LJWorld commenters. Civility & behavior were never problems when common sense, less reactionary moderators were watching over the remarks. Patrick Henry is probably spinning like a top. I hardly ever agreed with some of you, but one last tip o' the cap to a few former & soon to be former users:

RoeDapple - reticent_irreverent - babboy - prospector - The_Original_Bob - cwgoku - g_rock - autie - riverdrifter - andini - snap_pop_no_crackle - merrill (only fitting to mention the last two next to each other) - just_ another_ bozo_ on_this_bus - jafs - beatrice - Rondamiller - spacehog/hollis brown /rara avis/Eddie Haskell & many others.

Thanks, everybody! I'll see ya in the funny papers! Oh, wait...

For sale by owner: Baldwin City school buildings

Realtors are the first to tell you everything is negotiable including their fees. This is vey short sighted thinking by the school district. They are effectively shrinking the percentage of qualified potential buyers.

What were your favorite school supplies to buy as a kid?

Those little stick-on circle thingies that you put around the holes in your notebook paper so it wouldn't rip out of the binder as easily. What were they called, reinforcement dots? Are they still around?

Should menthol cigarettes be banned?

Benson & Hedges Menthol 100's have a more refined taste than Kools or even Newports. Flippin' smokes, man. Hardest drug to quit that I ever did. Stay away, kids. Just stay away.

Bullwinkles bar gets new owners, complete renovation

After it was the Bierstube & before it was Bullwinkle's, it was the Beer Garden & was run by a couple of small town goobers who catered to townies instead of college kids. Not exactly a well planned business model. Crazy good times, though, for some of us locals.

I'm in favor of adding these trails to the Rock Chalk project & hope they give serious consideration to using asphalt.

I pay both WoW & Westar online & have never been charged a service fee for doing so.

Iwig Dairy Store opens second Lawrence location north of the river

Not shady. Reorganization doesn't throw creditors under the bus; it just makes them wait at the bus stop a bit longer.
