Re: “Publisher defends Gazette's marijuana opinion dump

Thank you, Bryce, for your outstanding fact-finding and reporting regarding the Gazette's series of editorials and the daily's breaches of the SPJ Code of Ethics. Hopefully, state and national publications will comment as well.

Re: “Is the Gazette's new marijuana series a joke?

In my opinion, Herb Reason, you and long-time Gazette contributor Jack Edwards deserve awards for your tireless efforts to clear the haze from the daily's series of prohibitionist articles.

Re: “UPDATED: Gazette employees reportedly could be fired for commenting on marijuana stories

Keep "clearing the haze" behind the Potgate series, Bryce, and exposing the journalistically questionable actions of the Gazette.

Re: “Is the Gazette's new marijuana series a joke?

Thank you, Bryce, for again calling into question the suspect journalistic ethics and integrity of the Gazette.

Re: “If you love rape, slaughter and slavery: Happy Columbus Day.

I admired your Denver-Pueblo analogy, Bryce, and the facts your article highlighted. I completely agree with Seattle renaming the holiday more fittingly but hold little hope of it happening locally. Denver, Pueblo, and Manitou Springs are different stories.

Re: “Bach issues proposed 2015 spending plan

New city hires would include seven IT personnel and twenty police officers. Staff reductions would include one position from communications and one-and-a-half from municipal court. These numbers result in a proposed net gain of 24.5 new city-paid positions.

How about the 6000 annual, private-sector new jobs that you promised city voters, Mr.Bach? Where are they, in fast food, service, and hospitality industries -- or in limbo, awaiting further progress on the C4C scheme?
