I think that education on the issues at hand and doing an educated/non-biased Pro vs. Con on each candidate is much more helpful to the Inlander readers versus actual endorsements. The reality is that I am not going to vote for someone just because a paper endorses them. One thing that I can say is that I won't be voting for Larry Haskell...because I am sick of reading his wife's rude comments on every election news story. One would think that his campaign advisors would have addressed this with her but clearly not. Also....an editor can PERSONALLY endorse a candidate and not put endorsements in their publication. Food for thought....
I am not really sure I understand the first comment. How does it even apply to the article at all? The article is based on information from 2013 and not on anything going forward for 2014. The sarcasm seems unnecessary here. Seems like a pretty straightforward report by the Inlander. It is nice to have some transparency. Too bad we didn't see more of that in things that are paid for by taxpayer dollars.
I think that this is an interesting idea for the most part but here is another side to ponder....what if the $5 or $6 price difference between Amazon or another store is the difference between purchasing an item at all? If that were the case and the person ended up not purchasing an item at all then that doesn't seem to help anyone either. It is important to remember that for some the difference of a few dollars changes a purchase decision all together which can affect the economy. I am all for spending the extra to shop local if you can but not everyone has that luxury.
