Re: “Drumroll, please: Announcing your 18th Annual Pitch Music Award winners

Well it's nice to see you've successfully eradicated any trace of your childhood self since then.

Re: “Town Topic, Winstead's ... 'Best Burgers'? Really?

So glad no one is saying Blanc. I like Green Room and Flea Market a lot.

Re: “Breach of lawn uniformity sends shock waves through Brookside community

Former Brooksider: the article's tone was sarcastic.

Bobby Booshea: The answer to your question is easy. People have no inherent "right" to not have their property values impacted by perfectly legal actions carried about by their neighbors.

Re: “Should the Star be using words like 'thug'?

Here's a good article on this issue (warning, it's by a black guy, so of course nothing he says about racism can possibly be taken seriously! Only white guys know how to correctly apply the word racism.) http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014…

Re: “Should the Star be using words like 'thug'?

Bert, how do you know the offender in this story was black?

Yes, the event occurred in a predominantly black neighborhood, but even if it hadn't, my guess is that nearly everyone reading the word "thug" in this story would assume the perpetrator was black. (Moreso than if, say, the word "person" had been used.) If you think that assumption is reasonable, then that alone should serve as proof as to the fact that the word has morphed into racist code.

Re: “David Byrne is biking around Kansas City

I would have thought he'd be a vegetarian.
