Re: “On record: And Then Like Lions, by Blind Pilot

So, you couldn't focus on the music you were reviewing? It was good, "highly polished, tightly produced", but you had other things on your mind and couldn't give it the proper amount of attention? Is that right?

Re: “Former intelligence officer calls on Tester and Daines to investigate Russian election interference

Who's worried about communism anymore? I'm worried about a fascist president. Strandburg is on top of national politics as usual, pointing out the obvious. Thanks for the breaking news update!

Re: “Tim Nielson paints heroes—iconic, historic, contemporary and real

As it turns out, Tim is a hero in the eyes of a lot of kids at Sentinel High.

Re: “Business 101

"It's a popular approach—in part because it creates demand for administrators, and administrators are the ones who decide policy."

Absolutely. Let's not buy into the overpriced academic paralysis that grips Engstrom and HIS university. He's not interested in "customer service". If he was, why would he eliminate 187 faculty and staff positions?

Engstrom is like trump: the bottom line is that he's interested in holding the presidency for purely selfish reasons.

Re: “Collateral damage

It's a pathetic, sickening affair to watch conservatives throw their honor and wholesome ideology out the window in support of trump.

Re: “Daily grind

Brooks kills it! What do you do when the 1st Amendment is in jeopardy? Laugh! You'd better laugh, because the alternative is too much to handle. Maybe the funniest thing in this article was that Brooks is a subscriber to The Missoulian. Ludicrous!

Re: “Surprising settlement

What's the big surprise? I was more surprised that it took me a third of the way through this story to learn that Johnson had been acquitted-- as in "not guilty". Then, in the next sentence, I was surprised to see "The case was later featured in author John Krakauer's Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town."

So what?

More attention was given to Krakauer's book than to the witch hunt and Johnson's established innocence. "The woman he allegedly raped is the person who was treated unfairly in this case, as the U.S. Department of Justice made clear after thoroughly investigating the matter," he says in a statement. "If anyone should have received a big settlement, it was Johnson's victim."

Let's be abundantly clear on this point: Johnson did not rape that girl. She may have been victimized, but it wasn't at the hands of Johnson. That was thoroughly established in a court of law-- like it or not.

When you perpetuate lies and misconceptions about rape, you do a great disservice to those who are actual victims of sexual assault. I appreciate you shining a light on the cockroaches who perpetuate U of M's rape culture. That's a hefty responsibility you took on. Next time, make sure you're a little more specific in your finger pointing.
