No idea what that means. I never even went to journalism school.
You and "Ned" remind me of those two geezers on the Muppet Show who made dumb cracks from the rafters. They hated the show, but every week they were back for more. You hate the Voice - and yet you keep reading.
Come to think of it, at least those guys were funny. Also, they were brave enough to hold their opinions out in the open, instead of hiding behind anonymity.

The Muppet show was a great show to watch for comic relief. That's why I would watch it, and that's why I read the Voice. And as far as anonymity, how am I any different from eric above. My name is Ned, I live in Mountain View. Talk about a double standard.

In that case, Ned, I'm glad you're enjoying the Voice. Thanks for reading.
Just to be clear: You and eric and USA and everybody else are welcome to leave comments under any identity you like, so long as the comments are not obscene or otherwise out of bounds. Also, obviously, you're allowed to hold any opinion you want to hold -- it's a free country. The Voice's editorial staff may support Obama in the coming race, but we will fight like demons to support your right to vote for, and advocate for, McCain.
And we appreciate your participation in Town Square (even though you said, on another comment thread, that you'd like to see the whole thing shut down).
I was only making a tongue-in-cheek observation that you're different in some ways from the Muppet Show hecklers.
