Chet: I get it, you do not like Harmer, but how can anyone get so excited about McNerney? You actually used the word, "fantastic"...I feel sorry for you if the election of McNerney is actually so important to you that it is "fantastic"...What a depressing life you must lead.

Fantastic, I am not so sure. Half the people of his district did not want Jerry McNerney re-elected, but ever so slightly more of the voters did. I am not sure how either side can claim victory, let alone a "fantatsic" victory.

Will you still think it fantastic when Jerry votes to do away with the mortgage interest deduction to pay for Obama's record deficits?

By the way, Chet. It would be nice if you came up with original thoughts for this forum. Your post is a verbatim copy of the press release McNee's office put out yesterday.

Ricky: Obama could feed the multitude with a few loaves and fishes -- and you'd complain about the menu. I'm also not sure how your own repeated re-postings qualify you as the arbiter of forum netiquette.

It'll be interesting to see what Harmer does next. His tone and content in his interview with the Chron editorial board seemed to me to be quite academic. I wonder if he might teach, or maybe it's back to the think tanks?

Dear Dolores and Gina,

Neighbors, in their exchanges, have noted that much of the reporting done by the Express starts with reporting by commentators delivering the news first on the Express Forum. It is a positive contribution to our corridor communities to have individuals providing news as it happens and your follow-through in stories.

What becomes an issue to your readers among the neighborhoods is the commentary following such sharing. The forum drifts once again to personal attack, lack of content and very prejudiced positions. In this exchange, as an example, wouldn't it be better for your readers to receive review of what are commentators' wishes as actions by the successful candidate over the next two years in office? If we remain gridlocked in our positions on this forum and defame the position of others, then how can we expect any different behavior in Congress?

Could we please encourage more readers to provide the directions for our 11th District Congressional Member?
