Re: “Leon's Caribbean Restaurant

Next time stick to his tried and true staples (available for lunch special every day): Jerk Chicken, Brown Chicken, and Curry chicken!

Re: “Op-ed: Ruth Ann Dailey and Chris Potter -- allies at last!

Well, and there's the fact that I can buy a "hello kitty" assault rifle, or a pink breast cancer awareness handgun, or whatever other gun the free-world thinks I should be able to buy, but I can't choose to buy individual health care that covers birth control and maternity without spending hundreds of extra dollars every month. Because we do not have a free system of health-care that responds to what the masses want - we have an employer-driven government-involved health care mess.

Re: “Basic Cuts

Honestly, I feel bad for the 42,000 people who will lose their free lunch, but this program is clearly only working for a select few and the vast majority (400,000 including myself at a less stable time) were turned away. It seems like there should be some sort of compromise between adultBasic and "Special Care" that everybody who needs it can actually get into.

$36 is an absolute steal for even awful health insurance and clearly 400,000 people want that free lunch. I'd much rather see a new plan that costs $100 / month, has decent coverage, and doesn't turn away 90% of its eligible needy.

Agreed with ravenbrenna above, programs like this clearly show us how much health care reform is needed in this country. Too many people do not have access to affordable health care.

Re: “Fitzgerald takes up tax reassessments

Seems like everyone will ignore the elephant of Port Authority funding and focus on the threat of fair property taxes! It's going to be a long 4 years...

Re: “Council weighs in on arena worker dispute

Great letter!
If Aramark wants to fire people, let them have the courage to do it. This is the lazy company's approach to "cleaning house." It's pathetic and only encourages the good employees to leave.

Re: “Government so transparent that no one has seen it

Thanks for posting about this. A quick run-through shows as you suggest that the data is pretty skimpy. Hopefully, the website's existence will encourage better, more consistent descriptions. But I'm pretty impressed at how far back the information goes. I've seen quite a few entries from back in 2000.

Re: “If it's Sunday, it's another agenda-driven story in the Tribune-Review

Great digging there!
