From an elected public official:
"I cannot agree with you more!
Requiring your full name when making a blog post on Almanac would raise the bar for thoughtful and meaningful discussion rather than mud-slinging and hysterical rantings."

From a former Mayor:
"It's a shame that in the name of free speech, we must endure falsehoods, exaggerations and verbal attacks by those who don't have the courage to identify themselves and are protected behind a journalistic veil of secrecy. How this makes us a stronger, better informed community escapes me."
