    We all share a sense of anonymity here behind it we feel free to post exactly what we think.

    But make no mistake. Somewhere, someone knows more about us than we’re comfortable with. Our email addresses alone are enough to identify us. The host IP address from where our messages come is, too. If you’re operating in a government office that IP address generally traces back to a specific desktop. Home IP addresses don’t often change so it, too, is usually enough for identification.

    And all of that information has nefarious applications. The only question(s) that I have is who has that data and at what level of government are there plans, realized or not, to use it against those critical of specific policies or individuals.

    Good catch but you & I knew the fix was in for Gillum even prior to those boat photos up in NYC. Most likely we should not say “We Told Y’all So!”

    So we wont out of respect for our diverse cross-section of TR readership…some very sensitive to being told that someone “told them so”.

  3. ?Feds Move to Dismiss All Charges Against Gillum

    I think the Feds who monkeyed this up should have to pay the government back for the expenses they billed the TAXPAYERS.

    And be outed – no more blurred out pics.

  4. The story of the 1 year old seems to be the only traffic related item in the local news today.

    I’m wondering what happened at North Monroe and John Knox late Sunday that all traffic was diverted away from the intersection. Northbound traffic was diverted at Silver Slipper Ave while Southbound traffic was diverted at Allen Rd. All of it complicated by a strong thunderstorm overhead while the incident was being handled.

    The only story I’ve found was on the WCTV site with a “check back for updates” message following a 3-sentence explanation. With their expected lack of followup I’m hoping that someone else will also report on the incident.

  5. Arrest the parent of the 1 year old that allowed the child near a road unsupervised.

    Daniel Perry. No good deed goes unpunished. I would never set foot in New York.
