Bob-- but if the mercury news had been against D you would have not had a problem, right? The mercury news is a regional paper and should express their opinion. Plus their is freedom of the press.

8200 voters voted one way, 6300 voted another, combined low turnout representing just part of the voters, which represents part of the residents of Palo Alto. Nothing wrong with the system, but I'm surprised how upset the "winners" are on another thread in the forum, and why the Mercury News editorial would sting them so much. I happen to agree with that editorial.P

Why is the original poster, Bob, allowed to claim the Mercury News editorial "reeked of venom", but why was the comment by one of the responders who compared Bob's comments to the "venom" used by the opponents of D deleted.
The Weekly continues to carry out their one-sided and biased policy against Measure D
