Using the word journalism and the Mountain View Voice in the same sentence is laughable. If the Voice started printing the news without its liberal slant I might support it. As it stands it is a hodgepodge of mostly (bad) opinion.

I support this initiative fully and just submitted my payment. The Voice keeps me up to date on what is happening in the City of Mountain View and lets me join my neighbors in online conversations about it. That is worth a lot to me.

For those of you, like Ron, who don't like the Voice's articles or the forums, feel free to steer clear of them.
