ptm4936 1 year, 5 months ago on MCCULLOUGH: Showing a lack of intelligence

Probably wrong to expect people in the intelligence community or other sensitive operations to be any better or worse than society as a whole. Lowering your expectations will result in you being less disappointed. Join in as we rush toward mediocrity.

Giving everyone the same one-time boost encourages mediocrity. Bad teachers got the same encouragement as great teachers. But probably acceptable as Gwinnett moves towards "fairness".

Someone should remind King Alvin that "Full Funding" is whatever amount he receives each year from the State.

Someone should advise King Alvin that "full-funding" is whatever amount he receives from the state each year.

Nice of King Alvin to try and make this a racial issue. "you know we've had two school systems before in this state. We used to say they were separate but equal. Now, the separate was correct, but I don't think the equal was, do you?" The issues seem to be power and money with education as an afterthought.

ptm4936 1 year, 7 months ago on MCCULLOUGH: Jumping off the political train

All across Gwinnett liberals and conservatives are celebrating your concession column. Another independent thinker has quit and they have won. Nobody, including the great Nate McCullough, has ever converted a liberal or a conservative. They are not the target audience. The battle is over the 40% who are independent and who control the outcome of every election. By silencing another independent voice the hardliners on both sides win.

So enjoy writing funny stuff or slice of life stuff and leave the important stuff to those who are really committed.

Surprising that the committee could claim their recommendations were in the best interests of all of Gwinnett when they hadn't reviewed the actual bid that was submitted. Without that information the criticism is richly deserved.

Now that the full story is out, it seems that Eastside Medical Center has gone above and beyond to accommodate the two local cardiovascular groups. Unwilling to support the certification of need and unable to provide a competitive bid their complaint sounds like sour grapes. I commend Eastside's CEO for bending over backwards to work with these groups, inspite of their unwillingness to work with the hospital.

According to Tom Hanks "There is no whining in journalism!" So in the words of the Eagles Don Henley "Get over it!"

It is surprising that the citizen review committee could conclude what is in Gwinnett's best interest without having access to the proposal submitted.
