Re: “Defending the System

It is easy to be prejudiced against criminal defendants and assume their guilt. I am a firm believer in the policy of "innocent until proven guilty;' it is an important foundation of democracy. I agree with this Adams when he said he thought that "helping people most in need would be a noble profession." I believe in the judicial system as long as those within it act with honor and honesty. One man cannot define the lines between justice and mercy, but that is why we have a jury as well as a judge and lawyers for both sides.

Re: “Hiring Among Friends

If Todd Mielke had received $300 million dollars from corrupt foreign governments, big corporations or billionaires who want access to his family of crooks he would be adored and worshipped as a GOD. If he had deleted EVERY email he ever sent and broke every public records law in America he would be running for president and worshipped by this very same writer and a gift to society.

Maybe Todd is being shamed because his "crime" is that he is simply not stealing enough, corrupt enough or that he does not lie nearly enough to media watchdogs?

Re: “Dave Matthews Band at the Gorge, again

I've seen Dave twice at the Gorge. Twenty times...that's incredible!

Re: “Band to Watch 2015: LOOMER

I appreciate how the author of this article, (Mike Bookey), actually talks a bit about the music.... For most of the article actually, yet in a way that is both layman and astute. No real mention on what they wear or what other local bands they can be pigeonholed alongside. It was concise, has good flow, and makes me want to hear the band. Thanks for a good article, Mike!

Re: “The Contenders

Don't forget the measles aspect, either.

Here's an article from the NY Times earlier this month talking about how getting the measles can reduce the ability of the body to ward off other infections as well: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/05/07/m…

Re: “Rachel Dolezal explains why "Shorty can't breathe either" is problematic

I am Annie's ex sister -in-law, and I can assure you she is NOT racist. We have black family members we love. This about a man who can no longer breathe simply because he died at the hands of others! Please show your support for Annie by supporting her restaurant.

Re: “The Contenders

@larrycebula:

Here's what Fagan said:
“Men and women are not equal,” he said. “Biologically, there are differences between men and women. Is a 150-pound woman (police officer) going to be able to control a 250-pound, out-of-control so-and-so?”

Easy to pick who you will and won't vote for. Money will be raised for some of the new candidates.

Re: “Hiring Among Friends

Mielke got a degree to advance his career, and that's bad? He networks to find another job like unemployment counselors suggest, and that's bad? Didn't the Utah candidate leave his last position under an ethical cloud due to outside consulting, and yet he's "well-qualified"? Wouldn't anybody in the position be an at-will employee and subject to pressure from County Commissioners? This seems like a lot of handwringing without much substance.

Re: “The Contenders

"Ben Krauss, an analyst with the city who said he's running because of Fagan's views on pay differences between men and women working in city government."

I hate to ask...but what are Fagan's views on this matter?

Re: “What to know about the Gorge Amphitheatre summer concert series

Seriously? That is it? Can someone just put Dave Mathews out of his misery. How many times can one person see the same show every summer?

Re: “Promises and Payments

Thank God, someone finally created some shade for the Ag Center each winter. Oh, change that to thank you WW for keeping our Ag Center in your very large hotel's shadow all winter and running up the city's heating costs, icing up the sidewalks and blocking views.

Re: “Hiring Among Friends

This whole thing smells like a Port-a-Potty. Were we, the citizens of Spokane County, paying Mielke's full-time salary while he was off to school in Seattle? Even worse, were we paying his tuition and travel expenses? Very smelly.

Sort of as Desi would've said to Lucy, "Todd, you got some reimbursin' to do!"

Re: “Facing History

"Whatever Glover's faults, they do not fall on the scale of mass oppression and systematic injustice. He was not a killer or a slaveholder. There's no evidence he was more prejudiced than most white men of the time."

Glover did not contribute to oppression or systematic injustice?! Why does the writer excuse Glover's actions?! What about Natives and women?! What about anybody that's ever been wrongly institutionalized and separated from society?! You don't have to kill or enslave somebody to oppress them. You just have to marginalized their voices.
