I love to read the comments that people post in response to stories on Mainetoday.com. Only the most radical and half-baked comments get posted. Ever.
Got a story about censorship? It's followed by dozens of comments about the decline of our country due to political correctness and nuggets like "freedom isn't free."
Read a story about social welfare? The comments will be pearls of wisdom like "can't feed 'em, don't breed 'em" with frequent referrals to bootstraps and bleeding heart liberals.
Today I think I read the best one ever. In response to a story about how Millinocket is becoming a tourist destination (I know, life is weird), someone posted a response in Spanish, to which Jim, in Anytown, ME replied:
WHAT DID HE SAY? CAN ANYONE AT THE PAPER PUT THAT INTO ENGLISH, PLEASE....THIS IS AMERICA, IF WANT TO LIVE HERE SPEAK AND WRIGHT ENGLISH.
I hope Jim, "if want to live here" learns to "wright" English pretty soon too. Maybe he could do that with his free time instead of posting ignorant comments on a website.
