  1. If you read the article about the Gainesville public utility, be sure to read the comments to get a better picture of the situation. (I did not comment and I don’t know any of the commenters.)

  2. As I watched the family members and concerned citizens hold a pray vigil for the two black youth killed at McDonalds, my heart went out to them. But categorically, they hold at least some of the blame. When generation after generation repeats the same mistakes that promote poverty and violence, what are the results they expect? The group most likely to change the direction of the black community are the youth. And I think the black youth enjoy a life of crime and sex. Not long ago, Hwy 27 from I-10 north was a nice safe place to live. Make a choice, do you want a safe community or a weak on crime liberal government. You cannot have both. I’ve notice a lot of jobs once done by black folks are now perform by hispanics. The tree removal business, lawn service and construction seems dominated by hispanics.

  3. I am glad he will be charged and tried as an adult.
