Glad you're so upbeat and optimistic, Greg.

Why would anything change when you have one Liberal biased rag buying out another Liberal biased rag

Re: “A note from our publisher: Challenges to quality journalism are bigger than us

You were never truly independent anyways. You have advertisers. I imagine if they got ticked-off at your content, you'd change your tune real quick.

Well, get ready to do so as Lee takes you over. They just want you for that advertising. In a couple years you'll be rolled into the Missoulian and that'll be that - yet another weekly paper from Montana's history.

What was your take on this deal, Matt? Hopefully enough that in 5 or 10 years you don't regret it.

Re: “Sanders returns to offer Quist an assist

What good is this going to do?

$10 says he's coming back to Missoula, a city that's going to go for Quist anyways. That's if we even get out and vote - turnout in 2014 was 49% and in 2013 it was 41%.

I don't think it'll be that much different in 2017. We have 71,000 people in this city but nearly 40,000 of them don't vote.

Perhaps politicians should ask them way and then change their tune so those 40,000 do feel like voting.

Or Dems can just continue to lose, which is what I expect we'll see.

Re: “Yep, we're still here

Let's come back to this post in 6 months or a year and see how many of those names you mentioned are still working at the Indy.

I bet many will have been offered reduced salaries for the same amount of work and left because of it, while others simply would have been let go (fired or layed-off, whichever word you prefer).

It's the Lee way.

Re: “Indy sign (inevitably) vandalized

That pisses me off ! Sold down the river. If that isn't confirmation that worship of money is the religion of this damn country now, nothing is. Nothing is sacred anymore, money rules EVERYTHING in this country now.

It wasn't vandalized, just repainted in expressive new colors ;-}

Free thinking? Yeah if you're living in a "progressive" bubble.

Re: “So, about that sale...

It will take awhile but when you look at the other purchases; the Adit in Helena, Mini-Nickel in Bozeman, the Thrifty Nickel in Billings, etc. They all become part of the daily newspaper eventually. First the right-sizing, then the "great cross-selling opportunities", then "why not save money by moving in to the Missoulian" then, "Why do we have duplicate management?", then "Wow, the numbers are really looking bad, we should deliver the Indy in the Missoulian to save money", then it fades away. The really sad thing is that Matt and Lynne were given a plan to fix things in short order but thought it might cause too much stress. Matt is about to understand stress.

Although it has been quite a while since this was written by Patrick Klemz, we Missoulians need to encourage the district and other members of the public to reopen Prescott School. Jeanne Joscelyn, Prescott School advocate

Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

Ok, my bad. I should not have mentioned incestuous relationships even though they are out there, and girls are being impregnated, and I should have said "people" and not "men" because there are some truly uninformed women out there also. And Dan, really? Life begins across a crowded room? From now on I'm not making eye contact with ANYONE. It could kill me. Literally.

Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

In regards to HB 595, I just cannot believe that the men who are running things in the House are really, truly ready to throw women back into the dark ages. What are you gentlemen going to do when YOUR daughter, wife, niece, is raped and impregnated by a monster? I like your column Dan, but come on....across a crowded room life begins? From now on I'm not making eye contact with ANYONE. It could kill me. Literally.

Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

Wow. I just cannot believe that the MEN who are running things really, truly, want to send women back into the dark ages. What are you gentlemen going to do when YOUR daughter, niece, wife, or the incestuous relationship you are now hiding, is raped and impregnated by a monster....? I like your column Dan, but come on, really? HB 595 needs to be rejected and put in the trash can where it belongs.

Re: “Governor Bullock prepares to commit legicide

Right, we are not all Christians. Get involved...good idea. Think I'll call the legislators today. No wait they're gone. What's today? Maybe I'll call Congress? No wait...they're gone. And here I thought there was separation of church and state. " illegalise sperm"? What a novel idea! But then I wonder how transgender men will get their "wives" pregnant?
