Comments on the comments

July 20, 2010 - John D'Agostino
I am never amazed to read those courageous comments left by bloggers who hide behind Web names regarding articles or opinions posted on Here are some of those comments ... and a response from the past week:

From Gardener regarding the Forestville water woes editorial (July 18): “When are these people who try to run a community by the seat of their pants going to learn that bandaids will end up costing as much as doing the job right for once. Why don't they disolve the local government and let the county take over! Residents are paying for new meters and they have to boil water and ration it. This is absurd.”

MY TAKE: Forestville once again proves that when comes to government, you do not get what you pay for.

From Krasnitz regarding the reminder for building permits for roof repairs in Fredonia (July 19): “Another misleading editorial stirring up hate and discontent. The roofing check is to be sure the job meets code. ... Owners are to be commended for taking care of their property to the betterment of the community. Strict enforcement does NOT automatically mean fines It means doing it right.

MY TAKE: Oh yes, it is always the newspaper editorial that is misleading, never the politicians or elected officials of any government entity who dole out taxpayer dollars as though it was Lake Erie water.

From sunny1 on the Department of Social Services relocation in Dunkirk: “Cannot expect the people w/o transportation to take the bus to Jamestown then sit there all day long to get a bus home in the afternoon. Start putting your thinking caps on and get the services back here.”

MY TAKE: Yeah. Let’s not inconvenience anyone who needs taxpayer services, especially if they do not work. They have no schedule to keep except for their own personal commitments.
