The absurdity that is the Mercury's "Endorsement Letter's" pay to play policy was further revealed tonight where someone was charged a fee to criticize Dale Herspring's Sunday column published in the paper, explicitly take a position against the endorsement letter policy and mention the existence of President Obama.  Not sure which triggered the fee, but all are awful justifications independent of the dumb policy.

Weird. I thought Ned Seaton was 86ish years old.

That's Ed Seaton.  Like most Father-Son combos you can think of, the father is much better at this than the kid.

I kind of liked it. 

Important to keep things in perspective.  And it finished with a fun twist!

I'm not sure if I know of any collective group of professionals that consistently make bad decisions more often than school administrators.

Chairman Marvin Rodriguez said Ford asked a good question. Commissioner Ron Wells said he heard a little bit about the health department change. He said “a lot of it’s coming from our whiner-in-chief at the local paper,” referring to Ned Seaton, publisher and editor-in-chief of The Mercury.

Mercury publisher Ned Seaton asked for a waiver of the fee, and said the newspaper would continue to file the request routinely if the fees were waived.

“I don’t believe we -- or anybody -- ought to have to pay to obtain information that needs to be public anyway,” Seaton said.

Our advertising revenues had already dwindled over the years, sucked away to the coasts by Internet giants Google and Facebook, and, in a different way, by Craigslist.
