    We talk about guns, we talk about gangs. But in his LOL post, I think citydweller is absolutely right – this is a class issue. It’s a race issue to the extent that the blacks and Latinos doing the shootings are of the underclass. Essentially, you have a tremendous amount of poor Latino and to a lesser extent black families in the city, you have children having children, you have fathers who are not around and thus kids who are growing up without any paternal role models – Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote about all of this 42 years ago. It’s still happening. We really don’t talk about it.

    I’ve been writing about the discrimination in hiring at the Lancaster Newspapers for over 30 years, Gil! It’s still happening! Why don’t you talk about that, Gil?

    Your incessant carping about Shill Not Too Smart is getting old. I mean, the Newslanc editor declares Not Too Smart’s columns “brilliant” and gives not one…. not just two….. but THREE wags of the tail. Now that makes me wonder. Who is wagging whose tail for whom….and for what purpose??!?!?!

    • Becky says:

      LOL! Something other than “brilliant” comes to mind but I’m not sure I can use it on my site – it’s family friendly, you know! 🙁 😛 😛

    Sorry. But Shill has alway’s impressd me as sell-out material. To wit; op-eding nothing that would make the Con Center, mayor Dick, LNP’s lack of minority writers, the increased crime rate, the unsoloved crimes, and Sadly the Chief. He does however get his gutsy high school journalist “outrage” beating-the-dead-horse video topics from real op-ed journalists on CNN & MSNBC. No, I’m guessing that if Bill O’Reilly himself showed up and waved a check with all the right numbers in Shill’s face, Shill would pounce on it like a starving terrier on a steak.

    Gil “NOT SO” Smart on Fox News???? Not a chance; He’s much better suited for CNN, MSNBC, or the Cartoon Channnel

  4. William H. says:

    BTW, apology acceepted. In line? If

  5. William H. says:

    He’s such a f—in Fox News wanna-be.

    Ooooooooooooooooooooo. Today Gutsy Gill tackles “Global Warming” for his topic of: OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!!

    • Becky says:

      William H. – You are not the brightest bulb in the pack! 🙁 😛 Just because “Hothouse” is in the title does not mean it has to do with global warming.

      Horrors! It is about the total collapse of our economy and banking system. Run for the hills, folks. The Smart one has spoken:

      But ultimately this creates a fundamental imbalance. I’ve used the metaphor of a tower, a superstructure we keep building higher and higher, and as we built it up it gets ever-more rickety, it begins to sway, and yet we continue to build upward – rather than going back and trying to bolster the foundation.

      An economy structured this way will crash because it must.

  7. William H. says:

    For the same reason he doesn’t include mayor Dick in his gutsy high school newspaper get-to-the-bottom-of-this editorials. He know’s what side his mortgage is buttered on. What do you expect from a township brat?

    WGAL has this update on the 7-year-old girl who was shot multiple times:

    Despite numerous tips, police said no one has been arrested in the shooting.
