Your choice, your voice.

Do comments you post on the Humboldt Herald mysteriously disappear? Are you tired of being moderated by Heraldo? Post your opinions here instead--provided the courage of your convictions can withstand a little debate.

In which ‘talking points’ is defined as any statement made by someone Heraldo didn’t vote for

Newman’s big head

Let’s see how that works in a sentence:

That’s strange coming from someone [in this case Eureka City Councilman Mike Newman] who ignored comments from his own constituents… and stuck to his ill-informed talking points.

In which Heraldo’s intellectual deficit refuses to be overshadowed by his poor grammar

Yes, master

Developer overlord Rob Arkley wants the long-overdue GPU stopped until every elected seat is filled with a butt that will do his bidding — much like the City of Eureka.

He had me at butts that do his bidding.

In which Heraldo scrapes the very bottom of the news barrel

Tap into your tap

HSU students promote tap water over bottled water.

And bong water over both of those.

In which finally something useful is discussed

Keep it up

Need to learn how to pick up the ladies?  Make more money?  Maintain an erection?

Throw in a bit about the meaning of life and I think all the bases are covered.

In which we realize why Westsiders are so eager to re-open a school
