Commenter John doesn't seem thrilled with our fake-weed product test

Syn: It will fuck you up, says John, unless you're a stupidcunt.
  • Syn: It will fuck you up, says John, unless you're a stupidcunt.

A few readers of The Pitch Action News Team's recent look into the high provided by new strains of synthetic weed were disappointed with the results, but none more so than John, who seemed to find our methodology lacking. Take it away, John:

you up, and yes that many people are on probation. This is the worst

Misinformed shithead. Go smoke weed, do some opana, drink a little, take

some benzos, get on board you fuckin twat. suck a cock.

Comment of the Day: Guns for everyone!

Posted By on Fri, Dec 3, 2010 at 4:30 PM

You get a gun! And you get a gun! And you get a gun!
  • You get a gun! And you get a gun! And you get a gun!

Guns on college campuses was a hot topic this week after Kansas state Rep. Forrest Knox said he'd fight to get a concealed-carry law for college campuses in the Sunflower State. This brought out a chorus of commenters with fantasies about taking down a school shooter.

For one commenter, a Biff Malibu, government-controlled concealed-carry laws are a bad idea because Biff argues that anyone who wants to pack heat should be able to do so. Here are Biff's full, unedited thoughts: 

We all know that the Pitch is an entertainment rag, not a journalistic

publication in anyway. Given that, it is surprising that they would

broach such a subject, but then again, after reading the article it's

obvious this slanted, biased piece is little more than gastric release

by your typical bloated lefty, elitist, authoritarian.

The armed

citizen is a deterrent to crime and an asset to law enforcement. That

is easily demonstrated. What we need to do is to move beyond

regulation; licensing, restrictions and taxation on those who wish to

carry firearms for the defense of self and others. Kansas needs real

Constitutional Carry, as do all fifty states. There should be no

licensing, no fees, no registration, no inference from the government

in any way. If you choose to carry openly or concealed, so be it. It

is your inalienable right as a human being to possess and to carry the

tools of personal protection where ever you go.


Can't wait to see which legislator takes up this cause.

Comment of the Day: Prescriptions for pseudophedrine? 'Hell no!'

Posted By on Wed, Dec 1, 2010 at 4:30 PM

Just say no to scripts for drugs, writes one reader.
  • Just say no to scripts for drugs, writes one reader.

Should the state of Missouri require prescriptions for allergy and cold medicines containing pseudophedrine? One anonymous commenter emphatically answered no.

Anonymous wrote:

Hell no. since i don't have insurance i have to rely on allergy meds with this substance in them. i understand limiting my purchases by keeping track, but it would only make my life more difficult. if i had to settle for claritin without the pseudo stuff in it that doesn't actually do anything i'm positive i would cut off my nose to expose my sinus, thus making me the poster child for some decent fucking health care for people down on their luck at the moment. fuck this, fuck them, and fuck allergies.

Comment of the Day: Stop the 'navel gazing,' C.W. Gusewelle

Posted By on Tue, Nov 30, 2010 at 4:30 PM

Wanted: Substance from C-Dub.
  • Wanted: Substance from C-Dub.

Kansas City Star columnist C.W. Gusewelle's discovery of Google Maps column was another phoned piece, according to commenter FS Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald summarizes Gusewelle's career in a strong critique in the comments section of "Star columnist C.W. Guswelle has mind blown by Google Maps, mails in another column":

Gusewelle's problem is that although he often writes well, he almost never writes about anything substantive, so the reader ends up disappointed when the craftmanship is wasted on a inane topic. (Also for someone who allegedly loves Hemingway, he rarely uses simple and clear prose to state what his point is.)

The column he wrote after the election was an exception, and it attracted a lot of reaction, partly because it rattled the cage of tea party supporters, but also because it was so unexpected to have him weigh in on a significant current event. (Oh, look, he really does live in the real world!) This navel gazing and avoiding the controversies of the day have been his modus operandi for 25 years or more, and he has never fit his supposed role as a metro columnist.


C'mon, C-Dub. Embrace the controversy.

Heads of state and government officials, take note. If you want Assange dead, you have a volunteer assassin. Read more in this

Comment of the Day: The Crap Archivist gets an answer to whether Am I Normal? meets the crap litmus test

Posted By on Thu, Nov 18, 2010 at 4:30 PM

album_for_those_about_to_rock_we_salute_you_thumb_200x181_thumb_200x181_thumb_20.jpg

Crap Archivist Alan Scherstuhl asked earlier today if 1983's Am I Normal? is crap. Scherstuhl was perplexed because Am I Normal? appears to be "well-intentioned" but often comes with bizarre explanations for puberty.

One of the city's best bloggers, JJS in KCK, came through with a concise answer.

"Not crap" for its reassuring tone and honest (if amateur) explanations. "Crap" for its insistence on talking to one's peers as if puberty were as casual a topic as the shop teacher's nose hair."
As always, the truth is somewhere in the middle.

Not everyone likes an Almost Famous reference -- or at least my Almost Famous reference. Today's post about 18-year-old Matt Fritzie's unfortunate dive into a pool at the Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) house were met with a couple of unhappy letters from readers.

The best (i.e., most coherent) was from Bob Beachy. His is our Comment of the Day:

Comment of the Week: Lady in Tights begets us a God complex

Posted By on Fri, Jun 4, 2010 at 3:43 PM

Lady in Tights, meet the carpenter.
  • Lady in Tights, meet the carpenter.

Another week, another comment under last week's recap of Kansas' move to outlaw text-messaging for drivers. The careful observer -- someone not texting while reading this blog -- will note that our previous Comment of the Week was under the same post. There's a good reason for this: Omnipotence.

As commenter "Lady in Tights" says:

More than 6,697,254,041 people exist on the earth, three quarters are aware of the bible. One human preaching in one single country, set up it, through word of mouth. Internet users have the internet with which to reach all of those people, all this at your fingertips, you can change anything, go for it bad boys!!!!!!
Let's be straight with each other: Chatter on this topic -- anywhere -- has been pretty sleepy. Still, to the Ladies in Tights of the world, we're obliged to keep up that "bad boys" rep because, apparently, bloggers = Jesuses. So here we are going for it. Bless you, Lady.

Comment of the week: txt n ur car edition

Posted By on Fri, May 28, 2010 at 3:20 PM

kdottextingdrivingposters2_thumb_300x199.jpg
Both thumbs

on the wheel, please.

​To recap the week in symbolic legislation: Kansas has officially outlawed text-messaging while driving. But don't pick up your rotary-dial phone and get on the party line to celebrate your newfound safety just yet. Think about what commenter "Brian Nuevo" writes:

Hey at least it is still perfectly legal to play Tetris on my phone, take pictures with my phone, check my calendar on my phone, make and receive calls, use the calculator on my phone, watch YouTube videos on my phone, etc, etc, etc while driving. (all of which should affirmative defenses unless the state can prove you were texting.)

Your move, Kansas.

Comment of the Week: The dirt on jury deliberations at the Eria Doss murder trial

Posted By on Fri, May 21, 2010 at 3:30 PM

The jury locked 11-1 in Eria Doss' murder trial.
  • The jury locked 11-1 in Eria Doss' murder trial.

The jury deciding the fate of Eria

Doss locked 11-1, causing a mistrial in the 18-year-old's murder trial for the execution-style killings of Andrew Eli and Justin Budreau on

April 18, 2009.


In a videotaped interview with detective Robert Blehm, Doss

confessed that he

went to Eli's apartment with Larry Marshall and Michael

Gunn because Marshall said the "white boys" had good weed and

wouldn't be armed so they could easily rob them. But Doss claimed Eil and Budreau weren't supposed to die. He claimed Gunn shot the two while he searched a bedroom for weed.

How did the jury hang? An anonymous poster came through with the inside dirt.

It is VERY unbelievable! I was on the jury & 11 rational people

believed very strongly this was first degree murder but one person

choose to believe the criminal/murderer who said he only wanted to rob

the victims. My heart goes out to their family & friends who sat in

court showing dignity while being verbally attacked by the defendants

family. The defendants family is not at all sorry that he was involved

in such a brutal murder! Not hard to see why their family member grew up

to be a cold blooded murderer! I hope one day justice will be done!

Doss will be retried.
