I am writing right now to address one thing. The Union-Tribune has decided to have its comment section run through Facebook. This pisses me off. I have had a Facebook account, for quite a while actually before I deleted it. Now that I do not have one, I am annoyed that I have had to get another. I feel that the owners of the Union-Tribune have closed off a vibrant source of discourse. Of all the local news comment boards, the U-T had it best.

Now it is a shadow of its former self. Hopefully the new arrangement makes them money, but I will miss the old conversations. I will be posting here under the name moleman619. I say the same things online that I do face to face. I believe what I know and am willing to concede when I do not know. I just don’t want my IP address to be blacklisted!
