  1. As a former staffer with deep affection for the Mountain Xpress, no matter our differences, I’ve got to take wide exception to the Xpress reporting weather or immediate events (like the fatal crash on 240 this weekend).

    Quit pretending to be a daily. The strength here is weekly reporting on what matters to our community. Everyone who needs instantaneous weather info here can stick their heads out the window, and crash-by-crash info is for the daily and the talking heads.

    Back to basics, please!

    Sorry, but any poster who applauds the hot and humid, well I can’t wait for winter time. I have facial hair, warm clothes and 2 dogs to help keep the winter chill from these bones- we’ll see who’s laughing come January, (evil laugh).

    Re: Cecil’s comments- I think he’s got a point. I only wish he addressed the fashion section as well.
