Re: “Sexist cartoons in the Post-Gazette draw ire from Pittsburghers

I have just cancelled my subscription to the Post-Gazette. I used it to keep informed about local events but this is the last straw. The Post Gazette has taken a far right turn since John Robinson Block became the publisher. I was angered at their endorsements of trump and Rick Saccone. I was also angered by the firing of the award-winning cartoonist, Rob Rogers. And now this. I am appalled that the blatant sexism exhibited by the Steve Kelley cartoons was published. It assumes that all women are gold diggers or mooch off of men. The cartoons are very offensive. Furthermore, Bezo's wife met him before he founded Amazon and they had a 25 year marriage. I will continue to get my news from reputable news sources like the NYTimes and Washington Post.

Re: “Judge Lester Nauhaus has a history of making questionable comments in the courtroom, but has he gone too far?

Why are sexual offenses even brought before a civil summary appeals-Like Nauhaus? Because there was no evidence that would sustain a real criminal conviction. That's why. Those cases should have went before a real judge in criminal law. Not a civil summary appeals judge. The DA was pressured into those charges but could not bring any real criminal charges because there was no evidence of a crime. Just like the attempted civil prosecution of groping offenses which are ripe for Megan's Law. I would have done the same if I was a judge. Civil and Criminal law are two different animals with two different burdens of proof. What was the answer to this entire fiasco: the DA had the judge removed from office because he was not convicting people they way the DA wanted him to convict people. That is the state of delusion this county is in and something we the people should be afraid. This could happen to anyone now and there will be a conviction because of the change of judges. It's a political joke played on all the honest taxpayers. This could be you next.

Elessa:

Often, when a man is successful, it's only because his wife sacrificed her own aspirations to support his, as was the case with Jeff Bezos, according to this WIRED article.
